The Penitentiary of New Mexico (PNM) is located fifteen miles south of Santa Fe on Highway 14.
The complex consists of three separate facilities. The facilities are now referred to as Level V,
Level VI and Level II for the minimum restrict facility. The recent implementation of the Level
System within the New Mexico Corrections Department requires that inmates who cannot be
managed in general population, or cannot function in general population due to criteria established
by policy, will be separated from the general population. Management of such inmates will be
based upon behaviorally based step programs, in which increased privileges are granted for inmates who demonstrate appropriate
behavior for specified period of time
The Penitentiary of New Mexico is also home of one of the most barbaric, brutal riots in history. These words describe the rampage
murder, rape and torture that occurred February 1, 1980. This was one of the most violent prison uprisings in American history, it
lasted thirty-six hours, claiming thirty-three lives all at the hands of other inmates.

NMCD Training Academy is an ACA certified facility. The training academy
provides correctional officers basic training, crisis negotiator training, emergency
preparedness and use of force, MMPI training for psychologist ethical behavior in
the workplace and many other courses to help enhance the knowledge of New
Mexico employees.

On June 5, 1989, CCA-New Mexico Women’s Correctional Facility opened its doors to 149
female inmates who transferred from the New Mexico Corrections Department’s Western New
Mexico Correctional Facility, also in Grants. The designed capacity was 204 inmates. In
1994, the population had increased to over 250. To alleviate this situation, CCA submitted a
proposal and received approval from the New Mexico Corrections Department to construct
two additional minimum security housing units and an additional medium security unit
(bringing capacity to 322), as well as construction of a therapeutic unit for the treatment of
drug and alcohol abuse offenders. Construction began in May 1995 and was completed in
December 1995. In October 1999, a second expansion began and was completed in April
2000. With this expansion, approximately 57,303 square feet was added to the now existing 124,997 square footage. The 1999
expansion added a new Corrections Industries (standalone building); a new medical, dental, pharmaceutical, and medical
administration area; along with 274 dormitory style housing units.

Cibola County Correctional Center (CCCC) located in Milan, New Mexico is privately
 owned by CCA and was built in 1994. The property sits on more than twenty-eight acres.
The institution houses an average of 1140 male federal inmates and employs three hundred
and eighty-four security and support staff. CCCC offers the incarcerated offender an
opportunity to access facility programs in the areas of religious services, mental health
counseling, substance abuse therapy, education, vocational training and work assignments.
A multitude of services including health, legal access, recreation and leisure
activities are offered to enhance the quality of life within CCCC and, along with
the programs available, assist the inmates in preparation for a lawful life once
released back into the community.

Afro-Cuban & Brazillian Dance. Pilar was born and raised in San Francisco, where she was influenced and immersed in not only her
Filipino cultural dances, but also the dances of Brazil, Puerto Rico and Cuba. Becoming a member of Batucaje (one of the founding
groups of San Francisco’s CARNAVAL over twenty years ago) was the catalyst that inspired Pilar’s performance desires. Pilar has
toured Japan twice performing with her group The Caribbean Festival Dancers. She has traveled to Cuba three times to further her
knowledge of Afro-Cuban folkloric dances. While in Cuba, Pilar studied at the Escuela Nacional de Arte with members of Conjunto
Folklorico National and Raices Profundas. Pilar sums up her endeavors as this: “The dance I perform and teach is a collective
contribution to the evolution of an ancient, expressive, and timeless African-based cultural art form. As is customary in this great
evolution, the dance and music reflect my concerns, my aspirations, and the passionate celebration of life”.

Mix them up, turn up the heat and there you have it – SALSA – that irresistible music that has found its way from the Caribbean to all
parts of the world including the Southwest of the United States. In 1992, Cuban musician Cesar Bauvallet also found his way to the
Southwest, bringing his own vast musical experience. One year later he formed Son Como Son, an eight-piece salsa band performing
original and classic salsa music, all with a Cuban flair. Though a relatively small salsa ensemble, Son Como Son makes full use of its’
instrumentation to create a rich and dynamic sound .

Carson Colorado as a Sergeant. Russ became certified automobile mechanic. While employed at
a Chevrolet dealership and as a fly fishing guide on the weekends, Russ started comedy in
Colorado Springs, Colorado. To supplement his comedy income he would tie fly’s for a fishing
shop during the day. Since beginning his comedy career things have “taken off” for him. Russ
now owns Laffs Comedy Club in Albuquerque, NM. He always winds up out of his
element but has fun being there. He tries to be “politically correct,” sometimes he even succeeds!
