Extra InformationThis facility is for juvenile inmates.
The Division of Youth Corrections is responsible for the operation of Colorado’s juvenile detention “continuum”. The continuum consists of community based screening to determine detention needs, community supervision strategies, and secure detention in facilities operated by or contracting with the Division of Youth Corrections. In Colorado, detention serves two purposes:
- To ensure that a youth accused of a delinquency appears for hearings ordered by the court; and,
- To sentence adjudicated youth for a period of up to 45 days as a sanction by the court.
All youth detained or placed under supervision programs in the community receive a hearing before a magistrate within 48 hours. For those held in secure detention, a decision is made whether the youth will be sent home on a community supervision and treatment plan or if further detention is warranted.
