Weld County Community Corrections Board
The Weld County Board of Commissioners appoints members to the Weld County Community Corrections Board. This nine (9) member boards represents all facets of the criminal justice system and community. The Community Corrections Board members determine at a minimum:
- Which offenders may safely be placed in the community;
- Recommend to the Commissioners who may operate a community corrections program;
- What conditions an offender must follow to participate in the program; and
- Set standards by which the local provider(s) may operate a facility or program.
Accomplishing these Functions
The Community Corrections Board and staff receive and manage community corrections funds from the state. The Board selects and contracts with private vendors for services. Board staff monitors the operations of the vendors and audits them on a regular basis for conformity to established state standards. Board staff prepares and helps to present information on offenders referred for community corrections placement to the Community Corrections Board. All actions are recorded and communicated to the Courts, the Department of Corrections, Parole, and/or the Board of County Commissioners, as needed.
