    BernCo Youth Services Center Announces Changes to Juvenile Records Policy

    01/04/2019

    The Bernalillo County Youth Services Center is announcing revised state juvenile detention standards that impact the release of juvenile records to the public.

    Effective Jan. 1, 2019, changes to the state juvenile detention standards, which are issued by the Children Youth and Families Department, require that a juvenile’s parent/guardian/custodian or the court grant permission in writing before there is any release of information to the public, including records and images.

    The State of New Mexico’s Children Youth and Families Department regulates all juvenile detention centers in the state.

    The complete version of the revised juvenile detention standards can be accessed on the State Records and Archives website. The relevant portion is copied below for reference.

    New Mexico Register / Volume XXIX, Issue 24 / December 27, 2018

    TITLE 8 SOCIAL SERVICES
    CHAPTER 14 JUVENILE JUSTICE
    PART 14 NEW MEXICO JUVENILE DETENTION STANDARDS

    8.14.14.11 JUVENILE RECORDS:

    G. The center shall use a release of information form that complies with applicable state and federal laws. The juvenile’s parent/guardian/custodian or the court shall sign a release of information form before any release of information, including records and images, to the public. Once signed, a copy of the release of information form is maintained in the juvenile’s record. Without parental or court consent, no records, images, or information about adjudicated juveniles shall be released if, by law, it is to be sealed in the future. Without parental or court consent, no information, including records and images about pre-adjudicated juveniles, shall be released. Images include any photographs, mug-shots, and video.
