Due to popular demand, the new Bernalillo County website has begun posting booking photos of all inmates at the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC). MDC, for years, has posted inmate information without photos. Jail staff is often asked to provide photos of inmates to various agencies such as the media and court system personnel. The pictures are available on MDC’s home page.
“We receive many Inspection of Public Records Act requests for inmate photos,” says Bernalillo County Chief Information Officer Paul Roybal. “With this enhancement to our web page we will be able to better serve the public and become even more transparent in our level of providing information.”
The photos can be viewed by logging on to the county’s new website at www.bernco.gov
and going to the MDC home page’s “Custody Information” link. One photo is attached to each inmate description.
