Metropolitan Detention Center

Metropolitan Detention Center Hiring Correctional Officers


The Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) is still hiring and training correctional officers.

To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) to those who are most vulnerable, New Mexico is one of the many states that has implemented stay-at-home directives and closures for all but the most essential businesses and government services.

The Metropolitan Detention Center is an essential government service, is still fully operational, and continues to need and hire correctional officers.

The directives and closures make hiring events like those the MDC recruiting team has sponsored in the past unavailable for recruiting efforts. A virtual recruiting campaign is in the works.

For more information about becoming an MDC correctional officer for the academy class starting in May 2020, go to or call 505-839-8999.
