Colorado courts service-improvement program returning to Huerfano County

Tuesday, June 5, 2018

WALSENBURG, Colo. – People with business at the Huerfano County Courthouse during the week of June 11, 2018, will be asked to participate in an ongoing program designed to help ensure the Colorado Judicial Department is providing the best service possible to the public.

Throughout each day that week, court and probation employees at the courthouse at 401 Main Street in Walsenburg will ask people exiting the building to fill out brief, anonymous survey forms asking about their experiences as jurors, parties to a case or recipients of other Judicial Department services. Survey forms will be available in English and Spanish.

In addition, attorneys, law enforcement officers and anyone else who does business with the courts is encouraged to participate.

Similar surveys have been conducted in the past in the Third Judicial District (Huerfano and Las Animas counties), most recently in 2016. Since 2007, surveys have been conducted at least once in each of Colorado’s 22 judicial districts.

The surveys measure public opinion about access to and fairness of the courts. Questions include whether people felt safe in the building, whether they could easily understand the forms they needed, and whether they felt their case was handled in a fair manner. Participants also are asked whether they felt the judicial officer listened to them and had all the necessary information before making a decision, and whether they felt they were treated with courtesy and given clear information about the next step in their case.

The district courts in the Third Judicial District received 1,163 case filings, and the Huerfano County Court received 1,414 case filings, during Fiscal Year 2017.
