Website www.doc.state.co.us

The Colorado Department of Corrections is the principal department of the Colorado state government[1] that operates the state prisons. It has its headquarters in the Springs Office Park in unincorporated El Paso County, Colorado, near Colorado Springs.[2][3][4]

Facilities[edit]

Operations[edit]

All prisoners entering the Colorado DOC system first go to the Denver Reception & Diagnostic Center (DRDC) before going to their final assignments.[5]

Currently the state of Colorado has no designated death row. All prisoners with death sentences are given classifications of "securist custody level, administrative segregation." As of 2012 all prisoners with death sentences are located at the Sterling Correctional Facility. The execution chamber is located at the Colorado State Penitentiary. By state statute, executions take place there.[6]

From the 1890s to the 1990s, the Colorado death row was located at the Colorado Territorial Correctional Facility. In the 1990s the Colorado State Penitentiary opened.[7] Previously state statute dictated that prisoners with death sentences were to be held at the administrative segregation facility at the Colorado State Penitentiary.[8] In 2011 the State of Colorado moved its death row prisoners in order to settle a federal lawsuit filed by Nathan Dunlap, a death row prisoner. Dunlap had complained about the state's lack of outdoor exercise facilities at Colorado State Penitentiary.[7]

Fallen officers and officials[edit]

Since the establishment of the Colorado Department of Corrections, 14 officers have died in the line of duty.[9]

None have been honored on the Colorado Law Enforcement Memorial in Golden, however all are enshrined on the National memorial in Washington, DC.

Tom Clements, the director of the Colorado Department of Corrections, was shot and killed March 19, 2013 as he answered the door at his home in Monument, Colorado.[10]
