Juvenile Parole Board

The mission of the Colorado Juvenile Parole Board is to promote public safety by using statutory criteria in the best interest of the juvenile and victim when reintegrating the juvenile into the community.

The Colorado Juvenile Parole Board is authorized to grant, deny, modify, suspend, or revoke, and specify conditions of parole for all juvenile delinquents adjudicated to CDHS. The youth's parole time is established pursuant to Colorado Revised Statutes sections 19-2-909(1),(b), 19-2-921(6), and 19-2-1002(5)(a). The standard mandatory parole period is six months. However, in some instances the law authorizes the Board to extend the youth's parole for up to a maximum of 21 months. The parole decisions must be made in accordance with the best interest of the juvenile and the public, pursuant to C.R.S. 19-2-207.

The Colorado Juvenile Parole Board is comprised of nine members who are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate for a four year term. The board has four representatives from state agencies that include the Department of Education, Human Services, Labor and Employment and Public Safety and five public members not employed by the state, one from the Western Slope.The full board meets once a month.
