Bambi Folk leaving the Police Oversight Commission

Bambi Folk has been a member of the Police Oversight Commission since 2007. At least in recent months, she has been an almost exclusively destructive presence on the commission, acting rudely to her fellow commissioners, refusing to review evidence in complaint cases, raising personal objections to motions before the board, and throwing bizarre temper tantrums.

She’s finally leaving. Councilor Brad Winter is seeking a candidate to replace Folk on the commission when her term expires this February.

See some of the complaints we have filed against Bambi Folk, which undoubtedly influenced Winter’s decision not to re-appoint her.

Please share this news with your friends and neighbors in city council district 4. A qualified commissioner can make a big difference for police accountability in Albuquerque.

  • She needs to go now, along with Martinez and Francis. I couldn't believe Francis' statement at the last POC meeting. They spent a good amount of time discussing the problems with the rules giving the LTPC exclusivity in doing the in-depth oversight of police shooting cases, only to have him say something like " I don't understand why we need to change the rules, everyone I've talked to thinks it's working just fine". Hello! Hello! Commissioner Francis, its time for your medication....

  • Bambie Folk is not only rude and obstructing to her fellow board members but also extremely rude to any citizens who come before the board and if you view any televised poc meetings its very clear that officer Miller is emailing ms.Faulk instructions on what to question our citizens ....see for yourself..
