The New Mexico Association of Counties Detention Affiliate has long recognized the importance of professional standards. While New Mexico juvenile detention facilities are required to operate pursuant to mandatory standards, attempts to legislate mandatory adult detention standards had repeatedly failed in the New Mexico state legislature. In 2009 the affiliate decided to develop New Mexico standards for use in a voluntary accreditation program supported by the New Mexico Association of Counties and New Mexico Municipal League.
