Albuquerque, NM — A hearing officer has recommended that a former cop, who was allegedly caught on an FBI tape arranging shady deals with a known criminal, be stripped of his law enforcement certification.
Jose Valencia, a former detective with the Santa Fe Police Department, could have his license revoked for at least eight years when the Law Enforcement Academy Board takes up the matter at a meeting next week, according to board director Art Ortiz.
