Adult Approved Supervisor Process

Requirements and Responsibilities

Individuals seeking status as an Approved Supervisor for an Adult under Supervison for a Sex Offense, must meet all of the requirements in Section 5.7 of the Standards.

These requirements include a Criminal Background Check which includes:

  1. An online check through the Colorado Bureau of Investigations. This can be completed online for a fee, and sent via email or given directly to the approved treatment provider.
  2. A Federal Bureau of Investigations criminal history check.  This is completed by obtaining a fingerprint card from a third-party vendor and mailing the fingerprint card along with the required documentation to the FBI. You can request the results be sent directly to the approved supervisor.  Note:  No code is needed to obtain the FBI check.  Individuals will take their prints from the third-party vendor and send them directly to the FBI via mail.
