FAQs

  1. Community Corrections provides sentencing or placement alternatives in lieu of prison incarceration for felony offenders. Participating requires an offender to change his or her behavior, while allowing restricted access and privileges in the community.

  2. An evaluation is part of the overall screening process and is a 1:1 interview with the offender and evaluator. Information is gathered about their offenses, history of sentences by the court and supervision, mental health and substance abuse issues, and social history. This interview affords the offender an opportunity to tell their story and provide details of their life. The acceptance or denial of any offender during the screening process is based on a multitude of factors. An offender being successful in our program hinges on their responsibility for their decisions and their motivation to make positive changes in their life.

    If referred to Community Corrections by the courts for evaluation for placement, please contact 970-498-8570 or visit the administration desk at 2255 Midpoint Drive to schedule an interview.

  3. We accept a wide variety of offenses. There is not a specific crime that results in an  automatic rejection. The details of the offense is only one of the questions asked during an evaluation and you are provided a chance to explain the offense.

  4.  Entry into Community Corrections depends on available bed space and specific programming/treatment needs of the client. For security reasons, staff cannot give out specific information about the placement of an individual on the waitlist or the exact date they will enter the program.

     

    Current Waitlist Times: 

    Males sentenced to LCCC by court: approximately 3-4 weeks after sentencing

    Females sentenced to LCCC by court: approximately 3-4 weeks after sentencing

    Males transitioning from Dept of Corrections (DOC): 3-4 months after acceptance

    Females transitioning from Dept of Corrections (DOC): approximately 3-4 months after acceptance

     

    Time frames may differ for residential offenders on the waitlist for specialized programming (inpatient substance abuse or dual diagnosis treatment).  Waitlist estimates will be updated one time per month

  5. You can send your loved ones their belongings once they enter our program. We do not have a space to hold their belongings prior to their entry. You can address the items to your loved one and mail the package to 2255 Midpoint Drive Fort Collins, CO 80525. If you are able to drop their items off in person, please be aware that you will not be allowed to visit with your loved one at that time.

  6. Without a release of information we are unable to give out specific details regarding entry date, specific programming, or evaluation results.

  7. Visitation is suspended until further notice as of 3/13/2020

     

    Please visit the visitation application portal. Visitors must register online and be approved before scheduling a visit. All visitors will be subject to a background check and must comply with the guidelines outlined in the Resident and Family Guidebooks.

    Staff cannot give out specific information about a denial. Visitation requests are automatically denied if: 

    • The individual is under criminal justice supervision (pretrial, probation, parole, etc)
    • The individual has an open criminal or DUI case
    • The individual is required to register as a sex offender
    • There is an active protection order with the resident
    • There was an error with the application (no name listed, no date of birth, multiple adults on one application)
    • The person is not a resident in Larimer County Community Corrections

    Residents can speak to their case managers about denied visitation requests. Visitors may reapply if they have resolved the original reason for denial (such as no longer being under supervision or correcting an error in the application).

    ***Drop-Off Procedures as of 12/8/20

    Drop-offs are limited to clients with no community access and Treatment clients.  Clients with community access will not be permitted drop-offs as they are able to leave the facility.  Drop-offs must be in one small plastic grocery bag, non-sealed, with a reasonable amount of items. Overstuffed or sealed bags will not be accepted. New clients may still receive their one initial drop-off within the first week of entry during scheduled drop-off times.

    The dates and times for item and food drop-offs are as follows:

    Sunday - Morning - 0800-0830
    Tuesday - Evening - 2000-2030
    Thursday - Morning - 0800-0830
    Saturday - Evening - 2000-2030 

    You are only able to drop property off for one resident per drop off time. Please ensure that any property dropped off is allowed (please see page 3 of the Resident Guidebook). Any property in excess of what is allowed will be turned away. 

     - please review the following standards. Items mailed to the facility must follow the same drop off rules. 

    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.  Additional accepted items at this time include stamps, envelopes and personal craft items such as yarn, diamond dots, coloring books, etc. 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.
