Metropolitan Detention Center

PREA Staff Thanked and Recognized by County Commission

12/11/2019

At its Dec. 11 administrative meeting the Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners recognized the Metropolitan Detention Center Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) staff for reaching full compliance under PREA. This is a tremendous accomplishment for the MDC staff, who have worked tirelessly to implement numerous corrective actions at the facility to reach that goal. Facility upgrades, new policies, revamped investigation processes and increased training were just some aspects of the vigorous work by this team.

PREA was passed in 2003 and is the first federal law of its kind intended to deter the sexual assault of prisoners. Correctional facilities are audited for 45 standards under this act. The Metropolitan Detention Center completed its audit in October 2019, reaching full compliance for the very first time.

Thank you for your public service to the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center and your community.
