Recommendation Status

For each of the recommendations approved by the Commission, this page provides links to:
- the implementation status of the recommendation,
- the complete text of the recommendation, and,
- if applicable, the legislation derived from the recommendation.

A report of approved recommendations may also be found in the annual Commission reports.

Annually since 2008, the Commission has generated recommendations intended to improve the criminal justice system in Colorado by removing barriers to offender success while enhancing public safety and reducing victimization. Many of the recommendations are directed to specific agencies that are responsible for offender populations and address agency practices whereas others suggest legislation to modify Colorado Revised Statutes. The ultimate goals of these and future recommendations are to enhance public safety, reduce recidivism and optimize the efficient use of public resources.

Pursuant to 16-11.3-103(2)d), C.R.S. (H.B. 07-1358), the Commission also studies and evaluates the outcomes and implementation status of the approved recommendations. Below are lists of recommendation categories with every recommendation grouped BY TOPIC, BY TASK FORCE, BY STATUS and BY FISCAL YEAR. The links below navigate to a page containing brief recommendation descriptions and links to the complete text of the recommendation, the annual implementation updates for each recommendation, and, if applicable, associated legislation.
