The primary goal for social work and advocacy is to provide direct services such as crisis counseling and mediation to individuals and families experiencing social problems such as mental illness, alcohol and substance use and abuse, domestic violence, and child abuse, among others.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office currently employs two masters-level, licensed social workers for the benefit of our citizens. Together, they cover the three major area commands served by the Sheriff’s Office. As a service of the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, our assistance is available to all Bernalillo County residents 100% free of charge.
