Colorado Criminal Court Services: Bail and Bond Related Supervision Community Justice Services (CJS)

by Denver Colorado Criminal Defense Lawyer for Arguing the Conditions of Bail – Bond

What is Colorado Pretrial Release Supervision?

(Colorado Laws in this area are: C.R.S. 16-4-102, 16-4-103, 16-4-104 & 16-4-105)

Pretrial Release Supervision is intended and designed to ease jail overcrowding by supervising defendants who are released from jail during the pretrial stage of their criminal case.

CJS officers review and verify the initial evaluation of a defendant which is performed in the jail when a person is arrested and in custody. The intent of this evaluation is to make a determination of the person’s risk and needs.

Each defendant is advised and informed of the bond conditions of their release – these conditions MAY INCLUDE, but are NOT LIMITED TO:

compliance with the mandatory protection order

abstinence from alcohol/illicit drug use, no possession or use of firearms

periodic telephone contacts

office visits

electronic home monitoring

GPS monitoring

home site checks

mental health evaluations

substance abuse evaluations and treatment.

CJS officers report back to the District / County court Judges on the defendant’s compliance, or noncompliance with the court ordered conditions of bond.

What is the Colorado Pretrial Intake Procedure?

(Colorado Laws in this area are: – C.R.S. 16-4-102, 16-4-103, 16-4-104 & 16-4-105)

Pretrial Intake typically operates out of the County Sheriff’s detention facility and is responsible for interviewing and preparing bond reports on defendants, as they are booked into the facility.

The bond reports contain information that will be used by the District/County courts to set appropriate bonds on criminal cases.

Pretrial intake handles a large portion of the on-call responsibilities associated with the defendants who are electronically monitored as a condition of bond.

The CJS officers in this program are assigned the responsibility of investigating defendants who fail to appear for their scheduled court dates and making arrangements for the defendants to turn themselves in, or to be picked up by law enforcement.

What is Electronic In-home Detention in Colorado?

(Colorado Law in this area is: – C.R.S. 18-1.3-106(4))

In-home Detention is an alternative to incarceration sentencing options made available to the District/County courts.

This sentencing option is commonly referred to as “home detention” and allows the defendant to remain gainfully employed while they serve their court ordered sentence.

By statute, the defendant is only allowed out of their residence for work, court ordered treatment and medical related matters.

CJS is able to monitor a defendant’s alcohol consumption and whereabouts electronically, which holds the defendant accountable for court ordered conditions of home detention.
