Seeking applicants to serve on the Colorado Juvenile Parole Board
The Colorado Juvenile Parole Board (JPB) is seeking applications to fill two open citizen positions, one from West of the Continental Divide and one which is open to all citizens. Members are appointed to serve a four-year term by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate.
The Colorado Juvenile Parole Board is a nine-member board that has independent authority to grant, deny, modify, suspend, or revoke, and specify conditions of parole for all juveniles adjudicated to the Division of Youth Services. The mission of the JPB 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.
Juvenile Parole Board members are responsible for reviewing juvenile files, conducting hearings at least two full days a month and attending the full board meeting once a month. Citizen members receive a daily per diem ($150 per full day and $75 per half day) of work for transacting official business of the board.
To apply for a position on the JPB, please visit www.colorado.gov/governor/boards-and-commssions, complete the online application and submit a resume. Please submit your application by August 1, 2017 to be considered.
