Community Service clients are referred from a variety of sources, such as State and County probation, the State and City Attorney's Offices, and both Civil and Criminal Courts. Clients may enter into a deferred prosecution contractual agreement with the State Attorney, which requires offenders to perform community service hours. Additionally, clients may be required to complete community service hours as a condition of Level 1 Supervised Probation, or in lieu of fines, court costs, or cost of supervision for criminal offenses or civil traffic offenses. Clients are assessed a $10 fee for service for each community service orientation.
Any adult offender sentenced by the court, individuals required to complete community service work pursuant to a deferred prosecution agreement, individuals referred by State and County probation, juveniles sentenced in adult court or for truancy, civil traffic offenders who have received permission to complete community service in lieu of fines, and individuals with Drug Court Sanctions.
