A Message from New Mexico Attorney General, Raúl Torrez:
“As the leading law enforcement office in the state of New Mexico, I believe in the sanctity of every single life and the importance of ensuring the safety of our communities and schools. The Extreme Risk Protection Order law is a pivotal tool in our fight against gun violence within our state. It’s not about infringing on the rights of responsible gun owners – it’s about identifying those who are at extreme risk and taking the steps necessary to prevent potential tragedies. This is about creating a safer society for us all.”
The New Mexico Department of Justice’s Office is committed to ensuring the safety and security of all New Mexicans. An increasingly essential part of this commitment is enforcing and supporting the Extreme Risk Firearm Protection Order (ERFPO), a law that empowers the reporting party, and law enforcement to prevent potential gun violence. This law is designed to temporarily restrict firearm access to individuals deemed to be a risk to themselves or others. We believe in the power of preventative measures and New Mexico’s ERFPO is a testament to that belief.
Together, we can create a safer New Mexico.
There are two types of protection orders:
