Colorado Community Corrections Standards & Statutes


The Office of Community Corrections establishes Community Corrections Standards

Under the advisement of the Governor's Community Corrections Advisory Council, these standards establish minimum levels of service within Colorado community corrections programs and seek to reduce risks associated with managing offenders in the community.



The Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) are the codified general and permanent statutes of the Colorado General Assembly.

You can search the Colorado Legal Resources for the most current statute language.
