ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Polo shirts, radio earpieces and an enhanced video system are among the changes at the state's juvenile jails to increase safety and make the staff more professional.

Gov. Susana Martinez and Children, Youth and Families Secretary Yolanda Berumen-Deines on Tuesday announced the upgrades at the state's eight juvenile jails. The improved video system will allow the jails to record and catalog surveillance footage for up to one year.
