Community Engagement

Community engagement is essential to our work at the New Mexico Department of Justice. We strive to spread our message and share the work our office is pursuing. More importantly, we are dedicated to traveling throughout New Mexico to listen to your concerns, ideas and interests. We also provide trainings to local governments and other agencies across the state.
