Alternative Sentencing Facility

The Boulder County Alternative Sentencing Facility (ASF) will be a community-based, minimum security, residential facility that will house all alternative sentencing programs utilized in Boulder County. Alternative sentences are programs that allow offenders to serve their sentences in a less restrictive structure than a traditional jail or prison and can be residential or non-residential in nature.

Mission Statement

To provide alternatives to incarceration in the county jail by creating a dignified, sustainable and adaptive environment that will model the tenets of personal and community accountability, responsibility and respect that will be conducive to reparation and learning.


Although the primary charge of the ASF will be ensuring Public Safety by effective community supervision, it will also offer a host of evidence-based programs tailored to address our client’s individual criminogenic need and provide a framework for successful community re-entry, including:

  • Ensuring public safety with effective community supervision
  • Substance use and abuse treatment
  • Cognitive behavioral therapies
  • Gender-specific programming
  • Educational services, job training, life skills
  • Continuity of care plans for medical and physical health
  • Peer mentoring and community sponsors
