The Central New Mexico Correctional Facility in Los Lunas is home to the state's Reception and Diagnostic Center. Because this where RDC is located, CNMCF transports inmates daily. They see dozens of transports every week as inmates are driven to more permanent living arrangements around the state.
Warden Ken Smith took some time to show us the vans and point out their safety features. They are equipped with cameras, cages, and an intercom system.
All of these features in the new vehicles help contribute to NMCD's commitment to the safety and well-being of the people of New Mexico by ensuring the secure transportation of the inmates entrusted to our care.
