ABOUT THE COMMISSION

The New Mexico Sentencing Commission (NMSC) serves as a criminal and juvenile justice policy resource to the State of New Mexico.

NMSC provides information, analysis, recommendations, and assistance from a coordinated cross-agency perspective to the three branches of government and interested citizens so that those citizens have the information and resources they need to make policy decisions that benefit the criminal and juvenile justice systems.

The Commission consists of members from diverse parts of the criminal justice system, including members of the Executive and Judicial branches, representatives of lawmakers, law enforcement officials, criminal defense attorneys, and members of citizens’ interest groups.
