Community Service

The Community Service Program screens and secures community service worksites for all juveniles ordered to complete community service hours.  Program staff are responsible for ensuring juveniles accomplish the work and verify completion of the hours. The Court can impose community service hours monitored by Probation as a condition of Probation or Court Supervision.  The following factors are taken into consideration when placing a juvenile at a community service worksite: criminal history, physical and mental health history, work schedule, skills, interests and transportation.  Community Service is an opportunity for juveniles to give back to the community and make amends for their behavior. It also provides an opportunity to acquire job skills and experience a sense of accomplishment.
