Statements to the Board
Victims of crimes on any case and any offenders or their representatives may submit written comments to the Board. If you
are a victim of a crime or an offender (transition or diversion) being reviewed for community corrections placement and have
information that relates specifically to the Board’s decision-making criteria, you may provide this information in a written
statement to be considered by the Board prior to the meeting.
Written comments should relate specifically to answering the following questions:
- Would placing the offender into community corrections create a threat to public safety?
- Would the offender benefit from the treatment and supervision that community corrections offers?
Submit your written comments, prior to the date of the scheduled Board or Review Committee meeting, to:
Arapahoe County Community Corrections
Judicial Services Division
7305 S. Potomac St., Suite 150
Centennial, CO 80112
If you submit additional information after the deadline, your comments will be handed out at the beginning of the scheduled
meeting. However, this may delay the case to a later date if the Board determines more time is needed to review the material.
The party submitting an application may withdraw it or request the case be tabled for any reason. Photos, video and audio
recordings are not accepted.
Written comments will be included in the packets distributed to and read by all Board members prior to the Full Board meeting.
Staff will distribute written comments on Review Committee cases to Board members at the time the case is presented to the
If you are a victim of a Victim Rights Act (VRA) crime as defined by C.R.S. §24-4.1-302.5, you may provide a separate oral
statement to the Board at the time of the review.
Victims of crimes not listed under the VRA, offenders or their representatives will not be able to personally address the
Board. However, during a meeting, a Board member may ask a specific individual a question for clarification on any of the
materials in the case. The individual being asked the question may respond with a brief and direct answer.
When will I know the outcome of the meeting?
The Board will vote during the same meeting the case is heard. All efforts are made to hear a case as scheduled, although
there is no guarantee a case will be heard at that time, and you may not know this until the meeting is underway. There are
various reasons, at the Board’s discretion, which may delay a case to a later date, including an attorney’s request.
