Colorado Limiting Low-Level Arrests Amid COVID-19
To avoid introducing COVID-19 into our prison system, Denver and Boulder law enforcement are limiting low-level crime arrests.
Summons will be issued for low-level, non-violent drug and property crimes, according to Denver Post.
Summons are legal documents ordering a person to appear before a judge, where they could face charges but won’t be taken into custody.
The following Colorado jails have suspended visitation:
- Boulder County jail
- Adams County jail
- El Paso County jail
- All Colorado Department of Corrections prisons
- The Aurora Contract Detention Facility that houses immigrant detainees for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
