CSOC Programs


Jail Based Behavioral Health Services (JBBS)

The County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) is pleased to announce the start of the JBBS Administration Program. This program is designed to assist agencies with limited staffing to administer their JBBS programs efficiently. The CSOC Program Administrator will assist the Program Coordination Group in overseeing program implementation, making training and provider recommendations, measuring the program's progress, submitting monthly invoices and monitoring tools, and resolving ongoing challenges to program efficiency. The program's cost will be paid directly to CSOC from the participating agencies' JBBS funds. 

Rural Jail Education Program

An educational and vocational program offered to rural county jails that currently do not have an education program or need to supplement their program. Utilizing the Essential Education learning platform, presently used by the Department of Corrections and the Department of Human Resources, the program provides students the opportunity to complete TABE Testing, GED Academy, learn Computer and Work Skills, receive tutoring, and partake in College Education opportunities, which include the Coperr Program for work release students. The program will be administered through coordination with the local facility and the CSOC Programs Unit to keep students enrolled and engaged in continuing their education to reduce recidivism and provide opportunities for a better future.

This is why The County Sheriffs of Colorado Youth Athletic Program is dedicated to serving community members in rural counties throughout the state
