These findings and recommendations were prepared in response to CRCL’s spot-check at Torrance County Detention Facility in Estancia, New Mexico. The onsite was a high-level review and resulted in six top-line recommendations. The primary spot-check allegations were unsanitary facility conditions, including lack of access to clean drinking water. This was based in part upon the issuance of the Office of Inspector General’s report titled, Management Alert - Immediate Removal of All Detainees from the Torrance County Detention Facility (OIG Report) and general allegations CRCL received.
