Colorado participates in an interstate compact that allows a person
convicted of a crime in another state to have the person's probation or
parole supervised in Colorado (supervised person) and allows a person
convicted in another state who is not required to be supervised to
complete the person's court-ordered treatment in Colorado (unsupervised
person). The bill clarifies the process for treating a supervised or
unsupervised person in a private treatment program in Colorado. A
private treatment program is a program that provides substance use
treatment, sex offender management services, or domestic violence
services (program). The bill directs the program to assist the supervised
or unsupervised person with registering with the interstate compact
administrator. The department of corrections (department) is required to
complete a criminal history records check of the supervised or
unsupervised person to verify that the person is a supervised or
unsupervised person. The bill specifies the requirements for programs
when the participant is a supervised person.
Current law subjects a program or supervised person to a
misdemeanor for violating the provisions of the interstate compact. The
bill states that a violation may be reported to the program's appropriate
licensing, certifying, or approving agency for potential corrective action.
The bill requires the department to periodically update the out-of-state
offender questionnaire used by private treatment program providers.
