We have had reports of cyber criminals imitating court telephone numbers (“spoofing”) and demanding that citizens pay money for fines or fees in cases involving relatives. These calls are not valid. New Mexico Courts will never call citizens to ask for payments of any kind.

Tours

The Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court welcomes tour groups of all types interested in visiting our courthouse and learning about the criminal justice system.

The court is regularly visited by school groups of all ages, community, and neighborhood groups. Guided tours of the courthouse are easily arranged by calling Camille Baca at (505) 841-9897 at least two weeks in advance of the time you plan to visit.

School groups are usually limited to about 25 children at a time, with additional adults required when the students are young. Larger groups can be accommodated with enough advanced notice. Children under the age of seven usually do not enjoy a tour of the court as much as older kids and adults, but we try to tailor our narratives to the interest and comprehension levels of our visitors.
