Community Corrections

As referenced on the main page, Adams County offices are closed through April 30th. During this time, Community Corrections will complete any necessary work remotely; however, modifying and maintaining operations are the first priorities for the county and partner agencies.

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.

Additional Information

Community Corrections provides the support staff for the Community Corrections Board to timely and effectively carry out all of their responsibilities. Please contact Beth Torgersen, community corrections coordinator, at 720.523.2997 with any questions regarding community corrections in Adams County.
