By T.J. Wilham
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Albuquerque police chief suspended the department's volunteer police officer program Thursday in the wake of allegations that one of the officers made illegal arrests and was paid overtime for it.
Chief Ray Schultz said he intends to conduct a thorough review of APD's Reserve Corps before reactivating it. State officials say reserve officers can't make arrests.
