Strategic Direction

The Office of Community Corrections is embarking on a long-term endeavor to advance Colorado Community Corrections. This strategic effort centers around two primary strategies: 

  1. Statewide implementation of the 2017 Colorado Community Corrections Standards 
  2. Launch of the Program Assessment for Correctional Excellence (PACE) tool, which we will use to evaluate community corrections adherence to the National Institute of Corrections Principles of Effective Intervention.  

These two strategies complement our existing work in funding, regulation, and technical assistance to boards and providers in Colorado Community Corrections.   

Please read this detailed letter from OCC Director Glenn Tapia explaining in detail the strategic direction and changes to the Standards.
