The Community Corrections program provides a cost effective alternative to prison for appropriate offenders. Staff supports a local Community Corrections Board which determines the safe placement of offenders within approved community correction facilities.
The Community Corrections Program operates under C.R.S. 17-27-101, et seq., to provide courts, State Department of Corrections, and the State Board of Parole with more flexibility and a broader range of correctional options for offenders while ensuring public safety.
The Program supports the Community Corrections Board and facilitates the screening process for offenders being referred for placement and management of State funds and fiscal records. It also provides planning, policy, and program operations and development and serves as the County's contract agent. The Program offers legislative review and analysis, and acts as the research and evaluation unit for community corrections.
