Anyone can perform a New Mexico sex offender search by accessing the online public sex offender registry maintained by the Department of Public Safety. Sex offenders are required by law to register with the county sheriff within 10 days of being released from a correctional facility, placed on parole/probation, or after arriving in New Mexico. Public access to the registry allows individuals to make themselves aware of potential threats in their community.
