Q. What types of offenses did they commit to obtain community service?
A. Usually minor infractions of the law where they cannot pay their fine such as traffic offenses, and other minor misdemeanor offenses or felonies. Instead of overcrowding the jail, which places a burden on the taxpayers, clients are put to work with the county to pay their fines off, and save the county thousands of dollars through in kind labor.


Q. Are these clients dangerous criminals?
A. Typically clients are carefully screened by the judges and probation officers before they are selected to perform court ordered community service work. In addition the clients are under direct supervision by assigned county employees.
