Colo. officials seek $1M a year for fugitive unit

DENVER — Colorado corrections officials are asking state lawmakers for $1 million a year to hunt down fugitives.

The Colorado Department of Corrections says about 3,500 parolees have avoided supervision and many go on to commit new crimes.

According to the Denver Post, the proposal for the fugitive unit is the latest in a series of initiatives following the killing of Colorado corrections chief Tom Clements in March.
