The city of Alamogordo says it was because of performance review goals not being met, but he says there’s more to the story.  Alamogordo Police Chief Brian Peete believes it had something to do with a letter he sent to the city commission, detailing complaints against the city manager and the city attorney. “The letter was generally written, a summarization of all the things that I had saw that were my concerns hoping to address them at the lowest level possible. And I wrote it with the expectation that there may have been some engagement from the commission,” said Peete.  Peete sent the letter in December. In it, he claims there is a culture of retaliation, rampant unprofessional behavior and negligent leadership within the city manager’s office. He also says there are serious financial issues with the use of city funds. Now, he’s considering his legal options. https://www.krqe.com/news/new-mexico/alamogordo-police-chief-discusses-sudden-suspension/ KVIA 2019/11/04  Alamogordo police chief abruptly quits amid on-going lawsuit against the city. By Jim Parker https://kvia.com/news/new-mexico/2019/11/04/alamogordo-police-chief-abruptly-quits-amid-on-going- lawsuit-against-the-city/ Excerpt: ALAMOGORDO, New Mexico -- The police chief of Alamogordo, who has been locked in a legal battle with this southern New Mexico city following a brief suspension earlier this year, abruptly resigned from the position on Monday evening.  A statement from the city announcing Brian Peete's immediate resignation didn't cite a reason for him stepping down -- but in a lawsuit filed against the city over the summer, he alleged wrongdoing by a city administrator and violations of the New Mexico Whistleblower Protection Act.  Peete contends he was suspended for about a month at the start of this year as retaliation for sending a letter to city commissioners outlining what he called illegal and improper conduct by the now-former city manager. https://kvia.com/news/new-mexico/2019/11/04/alamogordo-police-chief-abruptly-quits-amid-on-going- lawsuit-against-the-city/ Perez Dominique, Albuquerque.

Real Crimes  Excerpt: (Later became APD Police Chief.)   “The APD Intelligence Unit, under the supervision of Sgt. Joseph Polisar, was accused of illegally creating and maintaining secret dossiers on innocent political figures.  The only possible use for such dossiers would be to exert influence and pressure on those politicians. When the existence of the dossiers became known, they were burned to prevent their inspection.  Sgt. Polisar was subsequently elevated to Chief of Police” 10/1/87: Former Chief Justice William Riordan, the City’s first independent councilor, found that the APD Intelligence Unit, under the supervision of APD Sgt. Joseph Polisar, had been secretly stockpiling information on local residents not suspected of wrong doing.  (The Unit was supposed to be gathering intelligence on motorcycle gangs, organized crime, terrorists and other criminal activity.) …7/5/94: APD Joseph Polisar, (supervisor of the APD Intelligence Unit when police burned the controversial Intelligence Files), was appointed Police Chief.   Real Crimes: http://www.realcrimes.com/Corruption_Overview.htm  See also Kaitarquette Porter Rodney,   Hobbs, (2005)  Articles Brown Watch (2005/01/03) http://brownwatch.squarespace.com/police-brutality-watch/2005/1/3/hobbs-police-beat-down-another- black-man-cop-with-racist-brutality-past-is-the-arresting-officer.html Excerpt from Brown Watch:  Arresting Officer has a History of Police Brutality Claims Against him (01/03/2005) One of the arresting officers, Detective Rodney Porter is no stranger to police brutality or racial discrimination claims. On August 24, 2004 a court awarded Jimmie Marshall, a 58 year old Black man $580,000 for police brutality claims he brought against Porter and the City of Hobbs. Specifically, Porter took a blood sample from him without his permission and without a warrant following a Dec. 26, 1996, traffic stop. Marshall claimed Porter only tried to stop him after determining Marshall was black and then used a racial slur during the arrest -- a claim Porter denied. The jury awarded Marshall $390,000 in compensatory and punitive damages for Porter's actions (the remainder was for the liability of another officer's actions).[more] http://brownwatch.squarespace.com/police-brutality-watch/2005/1/3/hobbs-police-beat-down-another- black-man-cop-with-racist-brutality-past-is-the-arresting-officer.html Pressburg CharlesLake Arthur.  Reserve.  Police Officer.  2017-Shooting question involving blood alcohol levels and brother-in-law while in Oregon.  Washington Times 2017/02/17 Officer from New Mexico pleads not guilty in Oregon.
