|Criminal Justice Services Department Director Matt Sullivan|
Sullivan has over 34 years of experience in the criminal justice system
“Matt is no stranger to CJSD, he has been with the department for over 34 years and has worked his way up through the ranks over the years. Matt has the experience and the institutional knowledge to continue the transition seamlessly without disruption to the services provided to Mesa County residents,” Whidden said. “Sullivan succeeds Dennis Berry who served as the director for 32 years.”
CJSD places its highest value on community safety, providing services which emphasize changing offender behavior to reduce recidivism while enhancing their productive contribution to the community. Offenders are held accountable for their actions and behavior, and for paying restitution, treatment costs and the costs of other services.
“We will continue to maintain the highest ethical standards for our clients while running programs in a fiscally responsible manner,” Sullivan said.
