Program Summary:

The Adult Community Service Unit assigns and monitors low-risk convicted offenders in volunteer positions with government and non-profit agencies to complete their court-ordered community service. The program provides a sentencing alternative that emphasizes restitution for the offense and giving back to the community through service. We incorporate aspects of Restorative Justice that focus on repairing the harm done rather than on punishment and retribution. The amount of community service ordered by the court varies between 12 and 120 hours.

Duties and Responsibilities:

Assist Community Services case management staff by working to place clients ordered to complete community service. Track client fee payments and community service contract due dates. Notify clients if these are past due and send non-compliance letters to the courts. Follow-up on missed client appointments and reschedule as necessary. Volunteers and interns may be assigned special projects as needed.

Qualifications and Requirements:

Must be 19 years old to apply.  Must have a knowledge of and/or strong interest in the criminal justice field, have strong verbal and written communication skills and be detail oriented.
