Media Inquiries

If you are a member of the media and have questions about our department or its employees please contact the Public Affairs Director or Public Affairs Coordinator. Your inquiries are always welcome. All New Mexico Corrections Department employee interviews must be coordinated through the Public Affairs Office.

Inmate Media Interviews

Inmates are allowed to give media interviews. First the requesting reporter or news agency must file out the Media Request Form for Inmate Interviews form and send it to the Public Affairs Office. The inmate must respond in writing that they agree to be interviewed. At that point, please contact the Public Affairs Director or Public Affairs Coordinator.
