Useful Public Service:
As a non-profit organization, Intervention is statutorily able to provide Community Service Placement (UPS) for offenders sentenced by the Court. Staff refer offenders to work sites (governmental or community based non-profit organizations), verify the number of hours completed, determine a completion dated, and report completion/non-completion to the original referring agency or Court.
Intervention has developed policies and procedure and established working relationships with over eight hundred (800) agencies.
Intervention believes that an effective monitoring program must be combined with a structured and consistent monitoring component. Generally, offenders are required to report weekly or more often if indicated to a case manager so equipment, and schedules can be verified and any alters/violations/malfunctions can be identified and resolved.
The Pretrial Services Program has been developed to be consistent with the Colorado Revised Statutes. Intervention has established working relationships with several counties in addressing jail over-crowding policy as affected by pre-trial offenders.
The goal of the Supervision Program is to provide supplemental community/probation supervision to lower risk offenders for State Probation Departments, in accordance with Chief Justice Directive 04-03 and consistent with the Colorado State Guidelines for Probation Supervision/Non-Residential Community Corrections as defined in Statute. Services to Probation Departments are provided by contract. The supervision program is also utilized to monitor compliance with Deferred Sentences. Intervention works closely with the Courts and Probation Departments in maintaining positive and collaborative relationships in order to develop flexible and prescriptive programming to meet the stated needs. We have developed specialized programs in numerous jurisdictions.

Restorative Justice Practices:
RJ practices provide opportunities for those most directly affected by a crime (victim, offender, families, and other community members) to be actively involved in the process of addressing harms, needs and obligations. RJ is about offender accountability, victim, healing, and community safety, through mediation and dialogue whenever possible. Currently Intervention provides programming in the following areas: useful public service, Life Skills training, victim impact services, treatment and resource referral, motivational interviewing, offender restitution, and criminal mediation.
Drug Testing and Urinalysis:
Intervention is of the philosophy that drug testing of clients is one component within a continuum of services designed to protect the public by holding clients accountable. Staff trained in the collection and processing of urine specimens fully adhere to the contractual and administrative requirements of the referring agency. Intervention offers several drug testing locations surrounding the Denver Metro area, as well as in several Jurisdictions state wide, that offer accommodating testing hours. This includes two 24hr testing facilities in Lakewood and Greeley.
Also known as Restorative Justice Mediation, involves a meeting between the victim and offender facilitated by a trained mediator. With the assistance of the mediator, the victim and offender begin to resolve the conflict and to construct their own approach to achieving justice in the face of their particular crime.
Residential Programs are an alternative to prison intended to help reintegrate offenders into their communities. Offenders placed in residential programs are commonly diverted or transferred from Colorado’s state prisons. These programs provide a structured environment where offenders: live and attend treatment, find employments, reconnect with family and community. Non-Residential Programs provide the lowest level of supervision in the community corrections system. Offenders live, work, and obtain treatment services in the community. Offenders typically transition from residential programs to non-residential programs.
Programming that utilizes evidence based practices to create opportunities for offender success and safer communities. Research indicates that involving offenders in a comprehensive process that addresses substance abuse and mental health needs, education and employment training, other support services and responsive case management, can help break the cycle of criminality and provide the opportunity for offenders to lead productive lives upon their return.
In-mate Out-mate Programs:
The Inmate/Outmate Program is a 1 year sentence County Jail that provides a community-based sentencing option created to: (1) offer clients convicted of multiple DUI/DWAI offenses an alternative to incarceration and (2) allow the clients to remain in the community by providing a program of intense supervision and intensive substance abuse treatment. Clients typically begin their sentence in jail on Inmate status. They then leave the jail on Outmate status and begin community-based supervision with an Intervention Case Manager. If there are any violations of the Terms and Conditions of the program, the client may be returned to jail on Inmate status. After further review, the client may then be released to resume the community-based portion of the sentence.
