    The Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners created the Detention Facility Management Oversight Advisory Board to provide a system of review to ensure that the Metropolitan Detention Center operates in accordance with the laws and requirements of the United States and the State of New Mexico. The intent is to guide the county to operate a safe and secure detention facility that strives to meet or exceed national standards.
    The Detention Facility Oversight Ordinance also aims to resolve the issues behind McClendon v. City of Albuquerque, et al. 

    The advisory board provides an oversight function on operations, strategic planning and policy implementation for the Metropolitan Detention Center, but is not involved in management decisions by the Chief of Corrections or county manager. The ordinance provides for independent checks and balances to ensure constructive direction.
