The McKinley County Misdemeanor Compliance Program provides assistance to the Gallup District, Magistrate and Municipal Courts through the safe and consistent handling of defendants who are going through the criminal justice system. The program is designed to enhance public safety by closely monitoring all court ordered requirements and in addition to connecting the defendant with other resources within the community. The program also instills, encourages and motivates the defendants to utilize skills that will help them to become happy and healthy productive members of society. 

The Program is built upon the principles of fairness, honesty, and the overall conduct of all employees.
