The Colorado Judicial Department administers adult and juvenile probation within Colorado’s 22 judicial districts. This includes 23 probation departments with over 50 separate probation offices throughout the state. The Colorado Probation Statement of Common Ground, listed above, was developed to clearly identify the critical functions that unify all probation departments in carrying out their mission. Probation’s commitment to these practices requires the implementation of innovative approaches to offender assessments, supervision, victim involvement and services to the community. These probation departments strive to meet every part of the Statement of Common Ground on a daily basis.
The mission of the Division of Probation Services is to improve the quality of probation services in Colorado through assistance, training and leadership. Activities of the Division include coordinated training; evaluation; policy and program development and implementation; legislative and budget coordination; and interagency collaboration. To that end, the Division and representatives of local probation departments developed a common ground statement to help guide the activities of Colorado Probation.
