The Arapahoe County Board of Commissioners and Arapahoe County Sheriff Tyler Brown released the following statements regarding Ballot Measure 1A:

Board of County Commissioners: “While we are disappointed in the outcome of this ballot measure, the Board of County Commissioners respects the will of Arapahoe County’s voters. Without a solution to address our aging infrastructure, Arapahoe County will need to consider all options – in partnership with the sheriff’s office and stakeholders – to best meet the public safety needs of our community within the constraints of our budget.”

Sheriff Brown: “A new facility would have made it safer for our employees to work with inmates in the crowded, stressed facility. It also would have allowed us to offer more programs to help inmates. Now we will need to focus on how to manage the increasing population in a facility that has been pushed far beyond its capacity. We will also continue to educate the public about the need for a safer facility that offers more treatment and rehabilitation programs to lower recidivism rates for inmates who return to the community.”

County officials will provide updates about next steps or new developments as they become available.
