Pueblo County Jail Task Force


Pueblo County Commissioner Garrison M. Ortiz began working to form the Pueblo County Jail Task Force in the first few weeks after being sworn-in as County Commissioner. The Pueblo County Jail Task Force met for the first time on Friday, March 17. The task force will be studying the current conditions and operations of the jail. They will deliver a comprehensive report, in the summer of 2017, that will recommend a short and long-term solution to address the Pueblo County Jail’s problems. The task force is comprised of 30 members and includes representatives from county and city entities, members of the sheriff's office, local business and company owners, representatives from local hospitals and citizens. The Pueblo County Jail Task Force will have five meetings on a monthly basis. There are also five subcommittees that will meet intermittently between the monthly Pueblo County Jail Task Force meetings.  Due to security concerns, the task force’s meetings will not be open to the public. However, the task force plans to post any releasable information here.
