Probationers who are court-ordered community restitution are required to perform a specified number of unpaid community work service hours for non-profit organizations or tax supported agencies.

COMMUNITY SERVICE WORK is ordered to help probationers:

  • GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY – By performing unpaid labor that benefits the community.
  • LEARN NEW SKILLS – By fulfilling the community restitution hours, the probationer may acquire knowledge about those assets an employer looks for in an employee, such as punctuality, responsibility, and courtesy.  They may also learn specific job skills that help them find and maintain employment.
  • MEET NEW PEOPLE – While completing the community restitution hours, they will meet other members of the community.  These individuals expect the probationers to help them, but some community members may help them in return.
  • LEARN TEAM WORK – The probationers will learn how to work as a team member by completing projects together with others who are also performing their community restitution hours.
