Villa Residents Relocating to Jail

Avalon owns the actual building at the Villa, Weld County has pulled the community corrections contract from them after allegations of misconduct earlier this year. ICCS and the county are looking to build a new facility for residents leaving Avalon with an empty facility.

Residents of Greeley's halfway house, The Villa, will move to the jail Monday with Intervention Inc. taking control of the community corrections services.

Kevin Strobel, chairman of the Weld County Board of Community Corrections, said Intervention Inc. was awarded the request for proposal on June 4 in light of a reports detailing several problems in the operation of The Villa including sexual liaisons in what became known as the "Boom-Boom Room," and a tunnel that held weapons and drug paraphernalia.

Community Education Centers, Inc. of New Jersey entered an agreement in May with The Villa's owners Avalon Correctional Services Inc. of Oklahoma to provide services until the end of the fiscal year on July 1.

It is nice of the union papers to point out the private contracts. Unfortunately they do not point out the daily violations of the constitution by the state run facilities. The state employs goons, and wantabe cops who terrorize the inmates because they can do it. Unfortunately the majority of the guards bring their psychologial problems to prison and mentally abuse the inmates and the DOC and state legislature committees just keep pouring money into their prison industrial comples pockets.
This mega committee that the governor appointed is a total farce. CCJRC and has reps, but they will not be heard, because the governor, as a former DA, is not really interested in making his already lined pac money pockets and his unions MAD.
How do we stop this? Non-violent protests and throwing all the politicians out of office. We have enough laws. Go to a once every 5 years legislative session.
