Corrections

The Santa Fe County Corrections Department was created in January of 2004 as the facilities moved from being privately run to the County. The Department provides oversight of all County Correctional programs including the Youth Development Program, the Electronic Monitoring Program, and the Adult Correctional Facility. The Department consists of approximately 320 staff, the majority of whom work at the Adult Facility and Electronic Monitoring Programs. They provide supervision of approximately 775 men, women, and youthful offenders who are detained daily in Santa Fe County. The Department Director collaborates with the Santa Fe County Jail Team on many issues regarding the facilities.
