MUNICIPAL COURT

Larry Allen
Municipal Court Judge

Municipal Court
The Canon City Municipal Court is the Judicial Branch of the Canon City government and is entirely independent of the Police Department. The Municipal Court has jurisdiction to hear, try, and determine all cases rising from violations of City Ordinances. These generally include traffic, criminal, shoplifting, code violations, animal violations, and parking. As is the case with all municipal courts, the court cannot be regarded as a revenue generating entity. Therefore, a court’s performance cannot be based solely on the amount of money it collects. Court staffing consists of one part-time judge (appointed by the City Council), one full-time court clerk, and one full-time deputy court clerk. Because we are a court of record, the judge must be a licensed Attorney at Law in Colorado. The clerks are responsible for the daily operation of the court. Those duties include processing tickets through the system from beginning to end, maintaining and retrieving records, checking backgrounds, preparing legal notices, scheduling court appearances with defendants, attorneys, police officers, and staff, receiving and posting money from defendants, and last but not least, interacting with the public on the phone and at the counter. The clerk must be able to answer questions from the public and guide them through the system without giving any legal advise.
