The New Mexico Sentencing Commission (NMSC) serves as a criminal and juvenile justice policy resource to the three branches of state government and interested citizens.

Its mission is to provide impartial information, analysis, recommendations, and assistance from a coordinated cross- agency perspective with an emphasis on maintaining public safety and making the best use of our criminal and juvenile justice resources.

The Commission is made up of representatives from the criminal justice system, including members of the Executive and Judicial branches, legislators’ appointees, law enforcement officials, criminal defense attorneys, and citizens.
