PUEBLO – After the Pueblo County Jail ballot initiative failed in the 2017 Coordinated Election, Pueblo County will to take a hard look at possible other solutions to address infrastructure, liability and safety concerns in order to maintain law and order in the most overcrowded jail in the State of Colorado.

“I would like to thank the Jail Task Force for their commitment to studying this multi-faceted issue. I do know at some point we will be forced legally to deal with this. One of the largest issues we have needed to tackle in county government is and has been the county jail. I’ve done my very best to present what the Task Force felt to be the best long-term fiscally responsible option, but I ultimately work for the people and I respect their voice in this election. I will continue to do all I can to improve public safety and support the men and women that work in our detention facility every day.” Ortiz said.
