FY21-SR02 UPDATE THE STANDARD CONDITIONS OF PAROLE AND REVISE THE ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS OF PAROLE [STATUTORY, POLICY]
No Implementation
Amend §17-2-201, C.R.S., to update and clarify the Standard Conditions of supervision for individuals on parole. The Standard Conditions of Parole apply to all individuals released under parole supervision. The existing Additional Conditions of Parole also have been revised for the Colorado State Board of Parole ["the Board"]. Both sets of conditions have been updated to clarify expectations, simplify language, increase comprehension, and remove duplication.  Because Additional Conditions are not specified in statute, no statutory language regarding Additional Conditions is required in the recommendation.
 
In this recommendation, the following substantive changes are made to the Standard Conditions:
- The mandatory urinalysis-testing requirement is moved to the Additional (Individual) Conditions.
- The expectation that an individual on parole not associate with people with a criminal record is eliminated.
- A requirement is added that mandates that the individual comply with all terms of any civil protection orders.
 
[The recommended Standard and the Additional Conditions may be found in Appendix A and the Proposed Statutory Language may be found in Appendix B in the "Recommendation Text."]
