Commissioner Zavaras began his career in Criminal Justice as a Community Parole Officer (CPO) for the Colorado Department of Corrections, Division of Adult Parole in 2005. As a CPO, he became knowledgeable on supervising virtually every type of caseload available from interstate cases to gangs and sex offenders. Following subsequent promotions, he became the Division's first supervisor of the Housing & Stabilization Unit, focused on hard to serve parolees experiencing homelessness and/or high mental health needs. In that capacity, Mr. Zavaras built bridges between parole staff, re-entry staff and community partners to ensure a smoother transition and more effective supervision, leading to his promotion to manager of the Unit as well deputy compact administrator. In 2021, he was appointed as commissioner, serving as the manager of the Interstate Compact Unit and Westminster field office.
