While the Probation Department supervises a variety of charged adult defendants, our continued priority in terms of resources and training needs remains focused on defendants charged with either prostitution or domestic violence (DV).
Strategies we use to supervise this population include
- mandatory court appearances
- monthly in-person check-ins for “level C” assessed DV defendants
- maintaining an active role in the DV Multi-disciplinary Treatment Team (MTT) process
- setting periodic court reviews to monitor compliance of lower level offenders
The Standards for Treatment with Court Ordered Domestic Violence Offenders, approved DV treatment providers and other information related to domestic violence can be found at Colorado Domestic Violence Offender Management Board (DVOMB) web site: dcj.dvomb.state.co.us
The probation division actively supervises defendants charged with prostitution and continues to be responsible for securing specialized residential placements to provide housing and treatment to address a number of presenting issues including substance abuse, mental health, lack of education or vocational training as well as other types of abuse for this vulnerable population.
