We have had reports of cyber criminals imitating court telephone numbers (“spoofing”) and demanding that citizens pay money for fines or fees in cases involving relatives. These calls are not valid. New Mexico Courts will never call citizens to ask for payments of any kind.

What is Pretrial Services?

Pretrial Services (PTS) is a form of non-monetary release. A person on release is required to report to the pretrial office in person unless otherwise instructed.  A judge determines whether a defendant is eligible for PTS and whether certain services, such as drug or alcohol testing, GPS, Soberlink, or mental health/substance abuse counseling, will be required as part of the PTS supervision services. PTS monitors a person’s compliance with court-ordered conditions of release.
