Community Service Sentencing

Fast Track Program

The Fast Track program provides an option for clients to complete their Community Service obligation on weekends. The Fast Track crew leaders are bilingual in Spanish and English, and provide a valuable option for monolingual Spanish speaking clients. The program is the only option for clients convicted of violent or sex-related offences. Fast Track crews primarily assist Boulder County agencies. They are also available for special events. Fast Track meets in Longmont at 1335 Kimbark Street. at 8:15 a.m. on Saturdays and in Boulder on Sundays at 7:45 a.m. at 1777 6th Street.
