November 6, 2023 – The El Paso County Board of Commissioners seeks a community-minded citizen volunteer to serve on the El Paso County Community Corrections Board. Applications for the open position are due by November 20, 2023.

The Community Corrections Board determines which offenders can safely be placed in the community, who can operate a community corrections program under what conditions an offender can participate in a program, and the standards by which a service provider can operate a facility. The board also monitors programs in the Fourth Judicial District, oversees compliance with state and local standards, and advises the El Paso County Board of Commissioners and the Fourth Judicial District Community Corrections Authority on other community corrections matters.

The Corrections Board is comprised of the following members or their representative: District Attorney, Sheriff, Chief Probation Officer, Manager of Parole Operations, Deputy State Public Defender, District Court Judge, El Paso County Court representative, Police Office representative, Teller County representative, a mental health representative, and six citizen-at-large representatives. All representatives are indefinite positions, except for the citizen-at-large positions, which are appointed for three-year terms and are limited to serving two consecutive terms.

The board meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 12:15 pm, either virtually or in person at the Justice Services Department, 17 N Spruce Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80905. Additionally, board members individually review and ballot on approximately 25 cases each week.
