The Dona Ana County NM Juvenile Detention is a medium to low-security detention center located at 1850 Cooper Loop
PO Box 800 Las Cruces, NM that is operated locally by the Juvenile Justice Department and holds youths awaiting the determination of punishment for the crimes which they are accused. Most of the adolescents are here for less than two years.

The 50-bed facility was built in 2000 and opened in 2001. Detention officers are stationed inside the housing unit dayrooms, directly supervising and observing the juveniles and their daily activities. Juveniles are housed in five different units. Each unit is designed to house ten juveniles. Four of the housing units consist of a dayroom, eight single-person cells and one two-person cell. The remaining unit consists of ten single-person cells, a dayroom and a small outside recreation area. It can be utilized as a maximum-security and/or special-management unit when needed.

The Las Cruces Public School District provides two full-time teachers for educational classes, allowing the juveniles to maintain their education while incarcerated and earn needed credits toward graduation. In addition, religious programming and life-skills classes are provided. Each detainee is allowed two half-hour family visits per week. Various counseling agencies are available for court-ordered counseling, and some provide individual counseling for detainees when such needs are identified. Recreational activities, commissary and library also are provided.
