The Socorro County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for maintaining and operating the Socorro County Detention Center.
This facility is an adult detention facility that also accepts inmates from nearly 30 other law enforcement agencies on a local, state or federal level.
The facility will take in a federal inmate when they have a court appearance in the area. The Socorro County Detention Center also works closely with other law enforcement agencies other than the sheriff’s department. The facility accepts inmates from the surrounding cities, counties, and even will take in the occasional federal inmate.
This facility is often times used as an example for many other governmental agencies who are looking to build new jails. The Socorro County Detention Center was one of the first direct-supervision facilities built in the United States. This paved the way for the next generation of facilities.
The correctional officers are trained to protect themselves, other inmates, and visitors from any sort of altercation that may arise. The correctional officers in the Socorro County Detention Center go through intensive training that surpasses the state and national level.
There are a handful of inmates in the facility that are serving out their sentence. If an inmate is sentenced to a sentence for more than two years, they will be transferred to state prison in New Mexico. Inmates who are serving out their sentence will have a sentence of two years or less. Majority of the inmates in the Socorro County Detention Center are inmates currently waiting for their trial to start, going through their trial, or inmates waiting to be sentenced.
