Home Courts By County Jefferson County Court Text Reminder Program
Court Text Reminder Program

The 1st Judicial District is part of the Statewide text message reminder program that is in compliance with C.R.S. § 13-3-1021(14), with the goal to reduce the number of criminal defendants and juvenile participants who are taken into custody solely as a result of their failure to appear in court.

The program is available to defendants in criminal cases (CR, T, M cases) and children and parents in Juvenile Delinquency (JD) cases.

Participants in the program will receive a text message on their mobile device reminding them of:

upcoming court dates

missed court dates

unplanned court closures

Phone numbers collected as part of the program will be kept separate from other individual identification information, must only be used to achieve the program's goal, and will not be shared or used by the court for any other purpose.

How to SIGN UP:

Simply complete and file a JDF-18 form for each case you would like to receive a text message reminder (For the spanish version of the form, please click here)
