Ties Questionable between TruTouch and Darren White

.


Bernalillo County Sheriff, Dan Houston, recently discovered $1,000,000.00 in DWI machines that were never used from TruTouch. Sound bad; it is! Back in 2008, (then) Sheriff, Darren White, administered a grant to purchase the machines and stated that he fully supported TruTouch. It would not be for some time that all the problems associated with these acts would come to light.

TruTouch President, James McNally and board member David Durgin, were contributors to White’s campaign for his failed attempt to run for the First Congressional District. White was beaten down by current Congressmen (D) Martin Heinrich. TruTouch violated state law by their failure to disclose pre-contract contributions. This also appears to be a violation of the contract itself. After receiving a huge no-bid contract with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department, White’s campaign received an additional $2,500.00.

White claims he had no fault, having accepted the contribution which was legal and reported to Federal Election Commission.

Between McNally and Durgin, they contributed a $3,500.00, in spite; Sheriff White was responsible for reporting how well the TruTouch machines performed.

The Eye does give White full credit to owning up to this. In his statement below, White clearly acknowledges and accepts responsibility.

“The Sheriff’s [sic] fully supports the Sole Source contract award to TruTouch Technologies…. The Sheriff’s Department will oversee the project and expenditure of grant funds and submit all necessary reports to the proper agencies. [Signed] Darren P. White, Sheriff — 2/19/2008″

It appears Darren White failed to follow through. The $1,000,000.00 machines were no more useful than a ten cent paperweight, the big difference is; the ten cent paperweight was used.

“White, who is now Albuquerque's Public Safety Director, said the machines were never used because nobody at the Sheriff's Office could get TruTouch to teach them how to use the devices.

However, a company news release says those machines, and a newer version under development, do not require user training, according to a Journal story published in January on venture capital investments for the company.”

Who is Lying; Albuquerque’s Public Safety Director, (former Sheriff) Darren White or TruTouch?


The information below may help answer this question.

While still holding the “bag,” White is still backing TruTouch even after a $1,100,000.00 price tag and a complete lost to us tax payers. The big question then becomes why?

One of the Eye On Albuquerque researchers located these two reference documents;

Agenda Item Number: 2008-4-6A
BERNALILLO COUNTY
BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
ELECTED OFFICIAL/OTHERS
Sheriffs Department:
The Sheriff’s fully supports the Sole Source contract award to TruTouch Technologies of
Albuquerque. TruTouch has demonstrated that they are the only bio-medical research firm
that has the current technology to test, develop, and manufacture the non-invasive biosensor
units. The department has actually done preliminary field work with a prior generation device in conjunction with TruTouch and were very encouraged by the efficacy of the capabilities and results provided by this equipment. The Sheriff’s Department will over-see the project and expenditure of grant funds and submit all necessary reports to the proper agencies.
Darren P. White, Sheriff - 2/19/2008
Now, that this phase of the development of the project is complete Senator Kent Cravens has
sponsored two Senate bills to provide funding to Bernalillo County to purchase prototype noninvasive biometric devices for testing in the field. The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department has agreed to participate in this field testing phase by managing and awarding the state grant money contracts, as well as being the first law enforcement agency in the United States to test this technology in “real life” law enforcement situations. If this sole source is approved, the procurement will allow for the non-invasive biometric sensor project to move forward through the gathering of data and determining the workability of the instrument for further development. The data and information from this testing will also be forwarded on to Representative Wilson, Senator Cravens, as well as Governor Richardson’s office for review. The equipment purchased will remain the property of Bernalillo County. The Sheriff’s Department has been awarded two Special Appropriations from the New Mexico State Legislature to purchase non-invasive alcohol and screening prototype equipment for the purpose of detecting and measuring alcohol levels in motorists while driving under the influence. The total amount of the two appropriations is$380,000. Both appropriations were sponsored by State Senator Kent Cravens of Albuquerque. The non-invasive alcohol screening equipment is part of Bernalillo County’s on-going initiative to develop “State of the Art” testing equipment for the interdiction and prevention of drunk driving.

In the Agenda Item Number: 2007-2-7A, it clearly states that the Risk Manager, David Baca, placed the legal verbage to allow legal recourse. Perhaps this may be something that the County of Bernalillo Government should explore.

In the Agenda Item Number: 2008-4-6A, it states, “The department has actually done preliminary field work with a prior generation device in conjunction with TruTouch and were very encouraged by the efficacy of the capabilities and results provided by this equipment.” … Darren P. White, Sheriff - 2/19/2008 (Italic added for emphasis)


“The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department has agreed to participate in this field testing phase by managing and awarding the state grant money contracts, as well as being the first law enforcement agency in the United States to test this technology in “real life” law enforcement situations.” (Italic added for emphasis)


If this is true, Darren White had knowledge that the Sheriff’s Department already knew how to use the machines because he claims his Department actually used them in the field testing. This contradicts his statement that the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department did not know how to use these machines.

White was also tasked with managing the State Grant Money and ensuring it was done correctly. What is really going on here?

What was this? Was this a play to pay scheme? You will have to decide.

Sheriff Houston, if there is a bono-fied problem here, as a public elected official you are being summons to duty; you have the legitimate authority and duty to call for an official investigation. Perhaps the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office since this involved State Grant Funding. Don’t bother with Bernalillo County District Attorney, Kari Brandenburg; in all probability she will do nothing as she did in another felony case that involved White. The Feds should be included since it involved Federal Grant Funding. If the Feds blow you off, go to the Department of Justice. It is your decision Sheriff Houston…

Here are a few final thoughts. Does the APOA President, Joey Sigala, Know something we don’t? Sigala stated in his Journal editorial on Monday, February 28, 2011, titled, “No-Confidence Vote About More Than Cars.” Sigala stated, “As the city faces a $40 million budget deficit, now might be the time to eliminate the position altogether. If not eliminate the position, then the Albuquerque Police Officer's Association is asking the mayor to consider a change of leadership at the position of chief Public Safety officer.” You will have to decide.

Here is what our Honorable Congressmen, Martin Heinrich, stated back in 2008, “ Heinrich contended that White received "illegal contributions" from officials of TruTouch Technologies, which received a sole-source contract earlier this year for the sheriff's department to test high-tech, noninvasive DWI enforcement technology. Heinrich said the contributions violated a state ethics law.”

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The New Mexico Attorney General is investigating whether fraud was committed regarding TruTouch machines purchased in 2008. Then-Bernalillo County Sheriff Darren White said the machines never worked...

...the taxpayers in Bernalillo County and the state of New Mexico and basically even nationwide, invested over $1 million into three boxes that are down in our basement that are worthless," said now-Sheriff Dan Houston.
Houston wants to know if any fraud was committed, so he has contacted the Attorney General.
Darren White was sheriff at the time the machines were purchased and said they never worked.

Well, how much evidence do we need? Is there something seriously wrong with this picture?
Sheriff Houston, the ball's in your court. Investigate this. Either tell the taxpayers that this was money well spent, or expose the truth and hold those responsible, liable for this con job.
These monies were not for the purpose someone's personal pleasure or a tool to advance someone's political future. Will this be allowed to stand, go un answered, be just swept under the carpet?
He almost got away with this? To make this even more suspicious is the fact that the campaign contributions were not reported properly. Come on, Darren is caught with his pants down here.
He needs to answer for this in a BIG WAY.
To all of you who blindly continue to support this guy, got news for you. Open your eyes; THIS GUY'S DIRTY. Stop pretending he isn't.
Stop accepting this for just 'Boys will be boys" or "Oh,Darren will be Darren" Enough already.
Mr. Mayor, you may continue to bury your head in the sand, but I doubt Sheriff Dan Houston will.

All White is pay to play at a cost to the taxpayers of one million plus dollars. Thank you EYE for exposing this, I dont think even ch13 or the Journal can spin this one. Sheriff Houston we voted for you. Did we put our trust in the wrong person or are you going to act ? This also goes for The State Attorney General. The FBI you wanted Brad when you should be after White. Investigate White clear Brad , not to mention that grant money was both State and Federal money. This is a boil on your administration Mayor Berry it is festering and it is going to erupt.

Anonymous said...

As far as I'm concerned, Berry is done. His political career over. He's known all along about what's been going on with the Brad and Darren thing and has chosen to ignore it and allow schultzie and white lie to the media by telling them that it was over pay cuts. They have been attacking the sites on facebook, because they don't want people to know their dirty little secrets. Now, here's yet another FELONY allegation against white.
Since Darren is getting investigated by the AG's office now, for FELONY charges, both state and federal, is he going to be placed on admin leave as well? Perhaps he and Levi Chavez can work at the pound together and swap stories.

This isn't going to go away. There are far too many people that know far too much, and they aren't going to stop talking; and no doubt that more garbage is going to come to light. Every day that you allow this to continue unchecked, you are putting another nail in your political coffin.

Who knows, maybe you want to be a one term mayor. I didn't think so, but maybe that's the case. Pity...you had tremeandous potential. But then again, you are a politician....

This is far from over, your reign of fear and intimidation and using Internal Affairs to retaliate on offiers and their families like its your own little Gestapo is quickly coming to an end. You just wait till you are in court in the lawsuit that is soon coming your way and I show the jury and the citizens of Albuquerque the paperwork I have with a statement from someone in your office stating you retaliated on me because I testified in the Comacho Trial and the falsified Disiplinary Card you sent to the US Attorneys office so AUSA Tera Neda could use it illegally (ref Garrity) to discredit me! Things you never thought I would find! This my friends is the tip of the iceberg that I have coming your way! My attorney and I recently acquired paperwork never disclosed to us Showing the Federal Government knew they never had a federal case, hid the paperwork from us and prosecuted me anyway!!! The culture of lies spins all the way to the top of the food chain. Mayor Berry if you continue to bury your head in the sand you are going to allow these two Clowns to destroy your political career and aspirations as well!!

From:DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF NEW MEXICO

The Journal got a few things right in its editorial questioning the purchase of the $1 million flawed anti-DWI equipment by Bernalillo County, sure.

But they largely give former sheriff and current political liability Darren White, who oversaw the implementation of the flawed system, a pass.

What the editorial doesn't tell you and doesn't question -- is that White received a hefty political contribution for his 2008 Congressional run from TruTouch, the company that created the flawed equipment, $3500.00 to be exact.

One would think such a fact would bear mentioning in the editorial. While White has recently distanced himself from TruTouch, public minutes from 2008 show he supported the project.

From the minutes of the Bernalillo County Commission meeting in 2008; “The department has actually done preliminary field work with a prior generation device in conjunction with TruTouch and were very encouraged by the efficacy of the capabilities and results provided by this equipment.” - Darren P. White, Sheriff - 2/19/2008

Darren gave one of our (S.O.) Sgt.s a write up for an incident that happened 18 months prior. The Sgt. Was a witness in an I.A. case, but the timing of it is very suspicious as the way I heard the story is as follows.

The Sgt. was training another Sgt. when they went to eat at Capo's. When the Training Sgt. saw Darren in the back, he opted to eat in the front. At the end of the meal, both Sgt.s went to pay and the owner of Capos told them it was paid for. The training Sgt. asked who paid and the owner told them that Darren paid. The Training Sgt. refused and asked the owner to ring him up, but the owner refused and said the meal was on him. The Sgt. in training went to thank Darren, The Training Sgt. put money in Darrens hand and told him no thanks. Darren chased him down across the floor and put the money in his pocket. The Training Sgt. then went back and threw the money on the table and loudly told Darren he would not accept lunch from him and walked out. TJ was eating with him and the table next to him was full of PD brass.

One week later the training Sgt. got his write up for an incident 18 months prior, some say he still has it framed.

I agree with all you on this. Just something to think about to throw in Shultz's face, and any other administrator.

In light of that, there is no way that any one can keep you from posting what you want to say on a social networking, blogging or any other site. I'm waiting for the lawsuits to start rolling on this policy.

So, let me get this straight...The federal govt gave 600k and the state gave 400k...the price of the equipment was 380k...the rest of that money was supposed to go to "developing" this trutouch stuff. Wonder if any of that "development" money went into Darren's pocket? Huh...just a thought.

Brad testified in my trial and because of his testimony in my trial, The Albuquerque Police Department 5th floor retaliated against him. The District Attorney (Brandenburg) did not like what his testimony was in Grand Jury and decided to hire an FBI Instructor from Virginia. Brad's qualifications and expertise blew the FBI Instructor's away. The District Attorney attempt to cut short Brad's expertise, training and instruction history and qualified him as an expert witness without letting him finish his qualifications. When the shooting with my dad happen, the 5th floor saw this as a way to get rid of me for good because I had pissed off the wrong people. Brad was my only witness and I was found not guilty.

Ladies and Gentlemen, things have to change because there is a lot of corruption going on. An officer should not have to worry about any kind of retaliation for doing their job and part of an officer's job is to testify in court and to tell the truth. Shultz, White, Brandenburg are doing what they please with whomever they please and things need to change. There has been a lot of dirty deeds done and I'm so glad it is about to come out.........Orlando Camacho

I was going to say; (the poster above beat me to it)Darren served briefly in the Army; he was not, repeat, was not decorated with shit. He claimed he was hurt, was basically what is refereed to in the military as a "Gold bricker". He joined Houston PD, a short distance from Fort Sam Houston where he was discharged. Only lasted a few years there.( would love to know anyone who knew him there) He eventually fled Houston, wound up here, joined APD. Re-injured the same Army injury .
Decorated! The only thing he should be decorated for is fraud.
To the 'Old (Republican)Guard'; you all have blinders on. You support candidates because they pretend to have an 'R' behind their name, which you know nothing about. He's a RHINO.

One of the big problems I see with APD and police in general is accountability. Its costing the taxpayers $3 million dollars for not following the law. All police, fire and city employees who are involved in wrongdoing and/or civil suits should have to forfeit at least a months pay. A months pay may not sound like much but it sends a message that bad actions have consequences. As it stand now their are none.

Maybe TJ should use plastic utensiles. Maybe that way he won't set fire to the table clothe when sparks are flying off his knife and fork. Darren; no utensiles needed. He eats with his hands. LOL!

Hey FANS; not too good at navigating face book. How do we get stuff over to you. Got a few paragraphs that would make for a great video.

Another $3M the County has to pay, or should I say pay back to people who weren't convicted. Why was their money confiscated in the first place?
In the quest for wanting to make a name for himself, is Darren just ALL ABOUTt being himself, a little PR_ _K!
Now he wants to appeal Judge Nash's decision. NOT GONNA HAPPEN SIR!
He needs to go on administrative leave, (WITHOUT) pay like everyone else in the same circumstances, until this is all cleared up.
Then again, that could take a couple of years before all that he has done, illegally, for this to be cleaned up.
He and Ray been on some kind of freaking free for all at the expense of the taxpayers. Maybe they should start being docked a % of their wages. Bet then, they will think twice before the go around gang banging people. This 'Culture' goes back to their invincible days together on the DWI squad. They made a party out of that too. Most of the women have left town or won't talk.
Bet the 'Old Guard' Republicans don't know about that. Old fools.

All of us need to be sending these complaints, objections, and events to Susanna Martinez and the city council. After you send these emails/letters, SAVE them, with the date on them and when you sent them. Put the ball and the problem in their court. Whenever they say they didn't know that this happened, everyone can say BS. They might not want to listen to one or two people, but they will have no choice but to listen to hundreds. Stop letting these people ruin our community and lives.

Why isn't a city council doing anything. Are they all sheep or they in on it too?

Now is the time to come forward. This corruption needs to stop now. Email the Eye with your information. I know your idenity is secure and they will never burn you. I Email all the time. I know the EYE is working overtime to end the corruption . If you have information it is time to step up.The burglary at Bryans home is about to be exposed. Do you really want to get caught up in that ? Brads Internal Affairs file will be published (THE DOCTORED ONE ) . Just because you may have retired does not mean you are free from criminal charges.

Not sure he would be able to outsmart Andy or Barney either though.

Aside from all the name calling, has anyone asked the question "why did White buy machines thate were not certified by SLD?" All officers know at least that little requirement. Who runs BCSO's DWI? White should have known the machines could not be used. Too bad, that money could have gone a long way toward buying new Intoxilyzers. so sad.

What a bunch of snakes. Bryan couldn't name drop White fast enough anytime my officers took a call at his shithole car shop. White obviously cares about his own skin more than anything. Now Bryan will name drop Ahrensfield at any given opportunity since their such great buds.

White and Bryan, you two belong with each other. I hope you both get to share a cell. White, you're either utterly incompetant or a pathological liar. Either way FUCK YOU.

Brad, I'm sorry you got caught up with these fools.

Barbara Bruin,the Director of the Animal Welfare Department, was put in place by RJ Berry as a favor to Daren White (no big surprise).
Somebody should look into her work ethic as the director of AWD,she only works maybe 25 - 30 hours a week (just ask any of the city employees there). Maybe APD or AFD would like the other 25% of her salary (She makes almost $100K).The animals and employees at the Shelter deserve better!

Now is the time to expose Ray, Darren & Berry for the scumbags they are. Berry knew exactly who he was keeping on and bringing on. He was not duped by either of them. They all probably have so much dirt on each that they are stuck with each other. They deserve everything they get and I look forward to it.

Soo badaattitude u are obviously a dumbass WHO would name drop darren? and hate to tell u but I happen to know Bryan and Brad are goood friends why dont you come out instead of hiding on the moniker thing stop trying to pretend your good with Brad and talking shit about Bryan....TJ is that you what a PUSSY

Did anybody bother to read the memos. Then Cong. Wilson helped secure the funds along with Bernco County Commissioners. Did they really domthis on their own? Of course not. So White either promoted the product and received a little kickback from the Corp OR he utterly failed in his capacity as BCSO Sheriff in implementing this program.

If somebody in the media had some brains they'd file a FOIA request and get the minutes of these meetings. Wilson also needs to be asked some tough questions ESPECIALLY now that she wants to run for the senate seat. Ms Wilson.....what did you know and when did you know it?????

To Animal Welfare post : E- Mail the Eye with your information. It is past time for city employees stand up and expose this waste for what it is. You work a full day for alot less cash than the director. IS it to much to ask she work 40 hrs. a week ? A.F.D. where are you on the Darren White melt down?

As a citizen who stumbled upon the Eye in Dec and has been following ever since, I want to say THANK YOU and congratulate all of you who are working together at all different levels to put an end to to the ABUSIVE, EGOCENTRIC, CORRUPT, DICTATORSHIP that has been POISONING the culture of APD and this City for a long time!!!

I find what is coming through the EYE is REALLY inspiring....APD, SO, AFD and other City Employees who want to work for leaders and organizations they respect, and to be able to do their jobs well and with integrity.

As usual, you men and women are our unsung HEROES, and what you are doing here proves it even more.

Brad Ahrensfield, I have to say you are a hell of a fighter in every sense of the word. THANK YOU for bringing this dirty business to the light and persevering even from the beginning when it seemed like there was no one in your corner...I hope the outcome of all of this gives some bigger meaning to the private hell you and your family have been put through.

Together all of you on this blog, on the FANS pages, and behind the scenes are demonstrating the true moral character of ABQ, and I just want to say publicly that I am very grateful and proud of you all.

Don't forget 'good time' buddy of Darren's, Sherman McCorkle. Certainly no funds or grants are secured for local business without his greedy little hands in on it.
What does he know about the TruTouch scandle and how much money did he make on this scum bag con job.

TJ, you wanna WEIGH in on this one ?
(Sorry, no pun intended)

Who is this Barbara Bruin lady ? Why is she making 100K a year and why is she only working 25-30 hours a week. If you love animals , it's your life's work, and certainly a 60 hour a week schedule is more appropriate, especially anyone lucky enough to be making that kind of money in this economy.
Does she possess the passion for animals as say someone like Sally Mayer.(I'm sorry COUNCILOR Mayer)
Maybe she should be running that place. She'd put in the hours and you can be rest assured, those animals would be well taken care of.
She gets my vote

Speaking of animal welfare. "68% of battered women reported violence towards their animals. 87% of these incidents occurred in the presence of the women, and 75% in the presence of the children, to psychologically control and coerce them.
" I find it ironic that they would place Levi there of all places.

PATTON said...

This is only the beginning. There is much more coming about Darren White and his good friend Ray Schultz.T.J. you better get your twin Jeff Proctor and shift the spin machine into high gear,you are going to need it. Mayor Berry you were told that these guys were trouble. You all better realize that you have pushed people to far,and they will not stand of the corruption. The words were clearly written on the lable on the box. DO NOT OPEN FOR INSIDE IS WAR. SO what did Shultz and White do when they read the lable ? THE BOX IS OPEN.

I don't know, but I would surely like Brad to answer the question if he and Bryan are buddies. I thought Bryan rolled against Brad to avoid any type of prosecution. Also what happened to Olivas, speaking of rolling? I haven't seen or heard from him. Did they transfer him to a cake job with weekends off. Can he take time off any time he wants. Not like us in the field, we have to beg to have time off and are only allowed one off on our team.

Went to MOE they are putting more responsibility on FSB when is everyone going to have the same responsibilities. Why is it FSB has to do work for everyone other Detective.

M.F.
I was in the trial and not only did he not roll on Brad but refused the USA's amunnity clause to the point where they had to stop the trial in order to remove the amunnity clause, so not sure where your getting your fact's so you might want to check them.

They are getting their facts from the news but they still don't realize that the news doesn't tell the truth.

MF if that's accurate thanks for the clarification. I still think Bryan is a snake though.
