(AP) — A New Mexico Court of Appeals ruling upholds a San Juan County jury's verdict in favor of a former Farmington Police Department detective who successfully sued under the state whistleblower protection law. The ruling Monday upholds a state District Court's verdict for Frank Dart and award to him of $4,000 in economic damages and $200,000 for emotional pain and suffering. The case stemmed from Dart's contention that the Police Department had failed to promptly investigate reports of child abuse and neglect referred to police by the state's child welfare agency. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/new-mexico/articles/2018-07-26/appeals-court-upholds- verdict-in-police-whistleblower-case Farmington Daily Times (2016/11/19) Retired Detective Claims Police Fail Child Crimes. By Steve Garrison. http://www.daily-times.com/story/news/crime/2016/11/19/retired-detective-claims-police-fail-child- crimes/91163876/ Excerpt: “Frank Dart, a former Farmington police detective, claims the city's police department has failed to adequately investigate child abuse claims, despite a 2012 lawsuit he filed against the department over the issue. And he would like the community to support the funding needed to make those cases a higher priority, bringing the problem out of the shadows of family dysfunction.  Dart, an investigator who received positive performance reviews throughout his time with the department, retired in 2013 amidst acrimonious claims of retaliation by police officials. Dart told The Daily Times in an interview the department has been slow to implement clear policies that would be most protective of the young victims.  He said the department had also failed to assign an adequate number of detectives to investigate child abuse cases, which represent some of the department’s most complex criminal investigations.” http://www.daily-times.com/story/news/crime/2016/11/19/retired-detective-claims-police-fail-child- crimes/91163876/ Davis Jani,  Taos,  Sergeant. (2016)  Excessive force: Kicked handcuffed suspect. Other officer involved: Brandt Warman. Santa Fe New Mexican (2016/01/11) Excerpt from Santa Fe New Mexican-2016/01/11: In the incident that led to charges against Davis, she struck a man with her knee while he was handcuffed and being searched by another officer. The man, Frank Olonia Jr., has a history of violence against law enforcement and Davis maintains he was preparing to kick her or a colleague. The knee strike was used as a distraction technique, she said.  But video of the incident depicts a volatile and heated incident during which Warman rushed Olonia after the man threatened his family.In his decision to fire Davis, Town Manager Rick Bellis wrote she lost control and lowered herself to the level of the belligerent suspect. He described Davis as contributing to if not escalating the situation to a melee…Davis said the cases showed how three white men were accused of misconduct in the same timeframe as her case but treated differently.“Women are held to different standards in a career that tends to work like a good old boys’ club,” she said. 2016/01/11--http://www.santafenewmexican.com/news/local_news/fired-taos-sergeant-argues-discipline-for- police-misconduct-has-been-inconsistent/article_e2ae00c4-7ffd-5591-839f-5ad40502c8f8.html Taos News (2018/06/15) Taos Sheriff hopeful settles discrimination suit with town.

Her foster brother was an Albuquerque police officer at the time of the shooting.The Hawkes family’s lawsuit, which was filed in state District Court and is seeking damages for Mary Hawkes’ death, was critical of the police investigation.It pointed out several inconsistencies in officers’ statements. For example, one officer said he was in his patrol car when the shooting happened, but lapel camera footage showed he actually was about 30 feet away from Hawkes and Dear when shots were fired.The lawsuit also said there was no DNA evidence, fingerprints or blood on the firearm that police said Hawkes was holding at the time she was shot.
