CRCL conducted an investigation into conditions of detention for ICE detainees at the Otero County Processing Center in Chaparral, New Mexico. Between March 2011 and November 2011, CRCL received several complaints relating to a wide range of issues in regard to conditions of detention at the facility. In response to these complaints, CRCL conducted a site review at the facility from March 13-15, 2012. As part of the review, CRCL used four independent subject-matter experts: a medical consultant, a mental health consultant, an environmental health and safety consultant, and a penologist.
