The JJAC is comprised of 15-33 experts in the area of juvenile justice and child welfare who are appointed by the Governor of New Mexico. The experts represent various fields such as law enforcement, juvenile courts, private non-profit organizations, juvenile mental health workers, and public agencies concerned with delinquency prevention or treatment. The JJAC aims to have one-fifth of its members be under the age of 28 at the time of their appointment and at least 3 who have been under the jurisdiction of the juvenile justice system at some point in their life, or a family member who represents their experience. A majority of the members cannot be full-time employees of Federal, State, or local government.
