Default New Mexico Classification Levels & Locations--Updated 4/11

Levels and locations:

Level I: CNMCF · NMWCF

Non-violent inmates may be eligible for work or school release.



Level II: PNM · CNMCF · SNMCF · WNMCF · NMWCF · RCC


Previously known as minimum restrict. Inmate's criminal background and record of institutional behavior indicate that the inmate can function in a dormitory setting without presenting a significant risk to the safe, secure and orderly operation of the institution. There must be no recent history of violent incidents or escape. Inmate has the ability to work outside the confines of the security perimeter under staff supervision without posing a risk of escape. Inmates assigned to level II have less than four (4) years until projected release and are not serving a sentence for first-degree murder.



Level III: LCCF · GCCF · TCDF · SFCDF · SNMCF · WNMCF · NMWCF · CNMCF* *(based on medical/mental health restrictions only )
