Not only it is the goal of NMCD to provide programming and opportunities for inmates, it is also NMCD's job to keep the inmates we have in custody safe. We are committed to ensuring safe prisons. Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility has demonstrated this by successfully passing their PREA Audit.
PREA is the Prison Rape Elimination Act. it is an act put into place to protect individuals from prison rape.
Seven out of eleven of our prisons are PREA compliant. We strive to not only meet these standards but exceed them.
