Originating in 1982, this program provides the courts in Washington County the option of sentencing offenders to perform community service hours. It also provides a graduated sanctioning option for felony drug court, family treatment court and probation.
Family treatment court
Felony drug court
Community service is appropriate for offenders who have been sentenced to a violation, vehicle and traffic offenses, misdemeanors and/or low level felonies.
Community service is not appropriate for offenders who have severe physical, mental health or emotional disabilities or those who are sex or violent offenders.
Community Service Placements
Offenders are either placed at a specific work site and/or on a work crew. Work crews are supervised directly by Alternative Sentencing staff. Work sites are supervised by supervisors at the work site. Regulations limit placement only to not for profit organizations / agencies and/or municipality departments or programs.
