About the Board

The 7th Judicial District Community Corrections Board was formed in 1986 by Joint Resolution 36-85 of the six boards of county commissioners.

Authority for the establishment of a Community Corrections Board is provided for by Colorado Revised Statute (CRS) 17-27-103. This statute provides that the local corrections board has the power to oversee community corrections in that district and to accept or reject an offender for placement in any facility located within that jurisdiction. A decision to reject an offender cannot be overridden by any order of the court.
