Corrections Aims to ENDWI

There are currently about 500 offenders in a New Mexico prison for drunk driving; 98 of those have either killed or seriously injured someone in a DWI crash.

This is simply not acceptable, and Secretary Gregg Marcantel challenged us to come up with plan to take a bigger chunk of that puzzle. Check out what our staff came up with!
