Joe Wolf was selected as APD's first civilian director of the APD Academy back July 2012. Schultz and Berry's idea was to bring a civilian with federal law enforcement training experience to help "soften" APD's basic and advanced police training. He said, “tactically it makes sense to soften (their) approach.” That meant no yelling at cadets, no D &C, no stress days, no hazing, no hell night, but lots of academics. In other words, it was an experience so unrelated to policing it must be designed to give the graduates an experience in shock and awe when they left the wading pool and went to the streets of Albuquerque. Because we all know the streets of Albuquerque are far from being stress free and safe. This has to be the idea right?
Actually, it's been a complete failure. Because for over a year, our Eyes tell us barely thirty cadets have graduated and joined the ranks of APD. Now, with a current class just a few months into their six month training, they have all but lost half the class to attrition. Many of our Eyes have speculated that perhaps there is something else going on and it has more to do with the caliber of cadets and less to do with the type of training. Or perhaps something else is going on. Maybe some sort of hook up?
Well, it seems if Director Wolf is not exactly minding his house. Well, we mean, while he is supposed to minding his training program and the cadets, he's actually more interested in APD's version of "internal affairs." Or as the disgraced former chief of APD, Ray Schultz called it, APD's secret "Nature at Play" division.
Our Eyes tell us, and we have confirmed that Director Wolf's domestic matters are in chaos as he is being sued for divorce by his spouse as stated in the 2nd District Court's docket. And that the "Nature at Play" tac-plans involved none other than an APD officer. Not that this could get any worse, but the suspected employee is one of the department's polygraphers.
So is this really the state of APD's training academy? It's director is having an affair with one of his department's lie detectors?
When Wolf came here, he stated he wanted to change APD's academy. He said, "We like to think of it now as more of a university campus than a boot camp.” Well it seems he sure did that, and immerse himself in with the co-ed activities....
