It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Denver Sheriff Department website. It has been designed to provide you with information about our agency and operations.
The Denver Sheriff Department is the largest Sheriff Department agency in the state of Colorado and is comprised of many divisions and diverse operations with over 890 uniformed and non-uniformed staff members. These operations include two separate jails, security for the District and County court systems, state inmate transportation, extradition duties, fugitive and K-9 units, a Community Corrections and Work Release facility, and security at Denver Health Medical Center.
All offenders who are in the custody of the Denver Sheriff Department are given the opportunity to participate in programs that are designed for successful re-entry back into the community. These programs include, life skills, mental health and substance abuse treatment, GED, faith based initiatives and productive day education. Through collaboration with the community and the Crime Prevention and Control Commission, the Denver Sheriff Department continues to seek ways to reduce recidivism.
I am extremely proud of the opportunity to serve you as the Director of Corrections and Undersheriff. I look forward to working towards further defining our rightful place as the best criminal justice agency in the Country.
