LAS CRUCES, N.M. — The director of the state Law Enforcement Academy is proposing a measure aimed at pressuring heads of law enforcement agencies around the state to report officer misconduct.

The proposal is designed to prevent officers who are fired or who resign because of misconduct or criminal behavior from moving to another agency without some review by the Law Enforcement Academy Board, which can suspend or revoke an officer's state certification.
