Offender Management Services

The Office of Offender Management Services is a merger of the Records and Classification Bureaus establishing an Office following the best practices of inmate management in Corrections. The purpose of the Office of Offender Management Services is public safety.

Specifically ensuring those individuals sent to the New Mexico Corrections Department have a Judgment and Sentence that gives NMCD the authority to incarcerate them. Through this office after completing the Reception and Diagnostic Center process, inmates will be housed at an appropriate prison facility based upon their security and programming needs. The office further ensures earned and forfeited good time is accounted for and posted consistent with state statute and NMCD policy. The Office of Offender Management Services is responsible for determining the inmates proper release from incarceration.

The Office of Offender Management Services is committed to the safety of the institutions, recidivism reduction, and ensuring the proper release of inmates.

The Adult Prisons Division of the New Mexico Corrections Department (NMCD) provides administrative oversight to eight state-operated and two privately-operated prisons.
