Albuquerque officer says department passed over better qualified officers to promote women, minorities
Las Cruces Sun-News
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Albuquerque Police Department passed over better qualified officers in order to promote women and minorities to top command positions with the approval of the city's administrators, according to a reverse-discrimination claim filed by a police lieutenant.
The claim filed by Lt. Gregory Callaghan alleges he missed out on promotions because of his race, sex and age. It also claims that top police officials retaliated against him when he questioned the promotions.
