Command Post

The Command Post is a 24-hour/seven days per week operation which is staffed by eight (8) full-time Command Post Navigators. The Command Post is responsible for triaging and redirecting electronic monitoring alerts received from a third-party private contractor. It also serves as logistical support to Community Parole Officers and to the myriad requests from outside law enforcement agencies who come in to contact with offenders under Adult Parole’s supervision.

Extradition Unit

The Extradition Unit staff works daily in conjunction with law enforcement and correctional agencies from all over the country in tracking offender arrests and scheduling extraditions of offenders back to Colorado. Extraditions are scheduled to be conducted by private contractor transport, and on occasion, by Community Parole Officers handling the offender extradition.
