Governor Announces 88 Percent Increase in DNA Matches Due to Expansion of Katie’s Law in New Mexico

Collecting DNA for all Felony Arrests Helps Provide Justice for Victims

Since New Mexico expanded Katie’s Law in 2011, the DNA Identification System has connected DNA from 463 arrestees to 478 cases. Without the expansion of Katie’s Law, during this time frame, there would have been DNA matched from just 245 arrestees to 254 cases. The expansion of Katie’s Law has led to an additional 218 arrestees connected to 224 cases.
