Since 2002, ADC LTD NM provides security guard services at the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court, which is New Mexico’s largest and busiest courthouse. ADC maintains a staff of 28 uniformed security guards who, on a daily basis, screen approximately 4,000 people entering the courthouse to attend hearings or transact other court business. The security guards also provide building, grounds, and parking lot security, as well as protection for judges, court staff, visiting dignitaries, attorneys, elected officials, and courtroom procedures. ADC’s security personnel screen and wand everyone entering the courthouse for restricted items, confiscating anything that is prohibited, including drugs, which are turned over to police officers who make arrests on the spot. All items are documented and properly transferred to BCMC officials. ADC informs BCMC officials of any possible threats.
ADC guards secure this facility on a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week basis, including holidays. All of our security guards must be cleared by BCMC’s security staff before being assigned to the contract. It should be noted that all ADC guards are certified in first aid and CPR.
