Notice of LCCC Temporary Closures & Program Changes

The continued health and safety of our staff, clients, and the public is our highest priority.  During this time, the following temporary Closures and Program Changes are in place for Community Corrections (LCCC):

***Updated 4/8/2020 at 8:00am***

1.  LCCC Evaluations moving to Phone Interviews Only:  Starting 3/16/2020, LCCC will only conduct evaluations over the phone. Interviews already scheduled will be changed to phone interviews at the same time where possible.  Individuals who need to schedule or reschedule their appointments must contact their evaluator or LCCC Admin at 970-498-7512 or by email here.

2.  Closure of  LCCC Visitation:  Starting March 13, 2020, Visitation within LCCC facilities has been suspended indefinitely.  The continued health and safety of our clients, staff and the public is our highest priority.  We are closely watching the local situation in respect to COVID-19 and with that in mind we will be temporarily restricting visitors from the community from entering our facilities.  Beginning 3/19/2020 all clients  will have four (4) ten-minute free phone calls per week for the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak. Thank you for your cooperation.

3.  Modified Item Drop-Off at  LCCC SUSPENDED UNTIL 4/12/2020:  Effective 4/8/2020-4/12/2020 item and food drop-offs will be suspended.  

Drop-offs will resume on Sunday, 4/12/2020 with the following restrictions: The only food items that will be accepted are items on the "Allowed Property" list on page 3 of the Resident Guidebook.  For example, this includes single-serving cans or aluminum packets (no 12- or 24-pack beverages allowed), microwave popcorn, individually wrapped coffee, tea, creamer, sugar packets, etc.   Cigarettes and other allowed items will be accepted as well. Please do not drop off cash at this time.  No pizzas or take-out will be accepted -- drop-offs should be groceries and essentials, not a single prepared meal for the night. Everything must fit in one small plastic grocery bag.  

 

Any drop-offs not adhering to these standards will be donated to the food bank. Please understand that we do not enjoy refusing drop-offs, but staff must be able to manage the amount of items coming in. Further abuse of this policy could result in the loss of drop-off privileges altogether.

 

In addition, anyone dropping items off for residents must present an ID to staff and sign a form stating that they understand that attempting to introduce dangerous contraband into a correctional facility could result in a felony charge.  

 

When drop-offs resume 4/12/2020, the dates and times are as follows:

If their last name starts with 'A' through 'I', residents can receive drop-offs on Sundays and Thursdays
If their last name starts with 'J' through 'Q' residents can receive drop-offs on Mondays and Fridays
If their last name starts with 'R' through 'Z' residents can receive drop-offs on Tuesdays and Saturdays
Community members will be able to drop items off for residents twice a day on their assigned day, from 8:30am to 9:00am and from 8:00pm to 8:30pm. 

4.  Closure of All Voluntarily-Attended Programs (including Volunteers & Interns working in Voluntarily-Attended Programs):  Starting March 13, 2020, LCCC will not be hosting any Voluntarily-Attended Programs.  Volunteers and Interns working in Voluntarily-Attended Programs should not report during this time.

5.  The Day Reporting Center hours of operation will be adjusted as of 3/28/20.  The hours of operation will be 3pm to 7pm daily.  Beginning 3/20/2020 the Day Reporting Center will immediately begin screening all clients entering the facility for substance testing for symptoms and potential exposure to COVID-19. If there is an indication of symptoms clients will be turned away.  Please visit the DRC webpage for more information.

 

6.  As of 3/20/2020 the AIIM/Wellness Court office will remain open and "cafe" will be closed. Program staff are implementing packing and delivery of medications as indicated. We will keep the program offices open for homeless clients and any current client who may need support during normal business hours. AIIM and Wellness Court is still accepting referrals, however our screening process is on hold at this time. Please visit the AIIM & Wellness Court Program webpage for more information. 

 

7.  As of 3/20/2020 Larimer County Community Corrections IRT and STIRT programs will not be accepting intakes into IRT or STIRT for anyone coming directly from the community.  Persons coming from custodial settings will need verification from the custodial setting medical staff that they show no signs or concerns for COVID-19, and are being transported by professional staff. We will not allow intakes that the clients are being released from custody and transporting themselves. All intakes will be screened for potential exposure and symptoms.

 

8.  LCCC residents are unable to leave the facility for employment reasons until 4/17/2020. For more information, please review the letter to employers or the Larimer County Public Health Order
