Responsibilities & Services
The purpose of Community Corrections is to provide alternative sanctions to individuals who would otherwise be incarcerated in prison. Community Corrections runs what is commonly known as a halfway house program.
Community Corrections Board
The state provides funds to the 17th Judicial District (Adams and Broomfield counties) for halfway houses to provide services to offenders. The Adams County Board of Commissioners appointed a Community Corrections Board that has the responsibility to:
- Monitor halfway house compliance to state standards and contract obligations
- Monitor the funds appropriated
- Negotiate and process contracts for services
- Review offender cases referred for community corrections placement
The Community Corrections Board has the authority to reject anyone for placement they determine to be a public safety risk. Not even a judge can sentence someone to a halfway house if the local board has not approved them. The program also has the right to refuse any individual they determine will be a risk to the public or their program.
