RECOMMENDATIONS. Pursuant to 16-11.3-103, C.R.S. (H.B. 2018-1287), the Commission is mandated to generate recommendations intended to improve the criminal justice system in Colorado by removing barriers to offender success while enhancing public safety, reducing recidivism, reducing victimization and optimizing the efficient use of public resources. About half of CCJJ recommendations suggest legislation to modify Colorado Revised Statutes and the remaining half that are not legislative address policies and practices of specific agencies that are responsible for criminal justice-involved populations.

RECOMMENDATION OUTCOMES. Pursuant to 16-11.3-103(2)(d), C.R.S.

Below are lists of recommendation categories with every recommendation grouped BY TOPIC, BY TASK FORCE, BY STATUS and BY FISCAL YEAR. Updates to the implementation status of recommendations are ongoing, unless the implementation status is labeled, "Complete."
