FORT STANTON, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez's administration plans to open a new juvenile detention center in southern New Mexico.

A spokesman for the Children, Youth and Families Department said Tuesday the juvenile center near Fort Stanton should open in October and will be at the location of the former Camp Sierra Blanca, a state facility for juvenile offenders that was closed four years ago.

A budget measure signed into law by the governor provided $900,000 for improvements to juvenile facilities in Albuquerque and at Fort Stanton, which is northeast of Ruidoso in Lincoln County.

CYFD is holding a job fair in Ruidoso next week for about 50 staff openings at the new juvenile center, which will be near historic Fort Stanton, a military fort established in 1855.
