The Central New Mexico Correctional Facility (CNMCF) is located approximately 30 minutes southwest of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Located in the Village of Los Lunas, it is one of the largest employers of this rural community. Originally built in 1980 as a 480-bed medium custody facility, it has now grown to be part of a three-unit complex. The Main Unit provides support to the two sister units for all centralized services. Thus, the vast majority of support, auxiliary and specialized services are provided through the Main Unit. The Level I Unit is also a satellite of CNMCF, and is located approximately two miles south of CNMCF Main Unit. It is currently the only Level I facility remaining in the New Mexico Corrections Department. The Level II Unit is a satellite of CNMCF, and is located on the same grounds. It houses 330 inmates with medical and mental health restrictions.

he Main Unit is broken down into one primary and five secondary missions. The primary mission is the Reception and Diagnostic Center for the Department. Fifty-four percent of the individuals incarcerated within the unit are a part of the Reception and Diagnostic process. The first secondary mission is the Mental Health Treatment Center (MHTC) with a total of fifteen percent of the population. Next we have a small portion of general population inmates that are required to remain at the unit based on medical or mental health care needs. The general population encompasses thirteen percent of the population. The next two missions surround the Long Term Care Unit (LTCU) with six percent and the Geriatric Unit with five percent of the total population. Lastly, the Main Unit carries a 48-bed segregation unit that totals seven percent of the population.
