Pueblos Receive Sex Offender Registration Funds

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Two New Mexico pueblos are receiving federal funds to implement sex offender registration and notification programs.

 The U.S. Department of Justice awarded funds to the pueblos of Cochiti and Zuni.

 Cochiti Pueblo is getting $166,500 to develop a sex offender registration program, while Zuni Pueblo is receiving $51,128 to do the same thing.

 In addition, some $73,686 will help the University of New Mexico’s Statistical Analysis Center continue a study on re-entry initiatives in New Mexico correction programs and the attitude of staff toward the offenders participating in those programs.

 The funds were announced by Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman.
