Participation in New Mexico

In November 2022, the New Mexico Sentencing Commission (NMSC) submitted a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs’ Bureau of Justice Assistance requesting intensive technical assistance to implement Justice Counts in New Mexico. As stated in Nevada’s request, the NMSC hopes to use Justice Counts to create “a platform that helps to gather, organize, and present data and information from across our currently siloed systems.”

What Leaders in New Mexico Are Saying

“We are excited to see the big picture of the status of the criminal legal system in New Mexico and nationwide. Being able to see local, municipal, and state data in one location with clear data descriptions and caveats will be insightful.”

Cydni Sanchez, Deputy Chief Public Defender, New Mexico Law Offices of the Public Defender

“As a state agency in New Mexico, a Justice Counts Founding State, it’s important to the Law Offices of the Public Defender to share data so decision-makers in all branches of New Mexico government see as complete a picture as possible of criminal legal system funding and resourcing. Achieving parity in resources compared with the rest of the state’s criminal legal system is a critical part of our mission to best serve our clients and sharing data is a step towards that goal.”

Theresa Edwards, Deputy Director of Policy and Administration, New Mexico Law Offices of the Public Defender
