  • OMS is responsible for determining proper release dates from incarceration, based upon their judgement and sentence.
  • OMS ensures earned and forfeited good time credit is accounted for and posted, consistent with state statute and NMCD policy. 
  • OMS oversees the interstate compact inmates.
