Community service labor may be ordered by the court for any offender placed under the supervision of the Office of Adult Court Services.  Over thirty non-profit community service sites participate in this program, including state and local government agencies, charities, fire departments, community organizations and public parks.  The Office of Adult Court Services is responsible for placement and monitoring of each offender's progress in conjunction with the delegated work site supervisor.  In FY 2015 alone over 5,500 hours were completed.  Multiplied by the current minimum wage, this is approximately $40,000 of free labor for the county.  Additionally, offenders who are deemed indigent by the courts may be permitted to perform community service labor in lieu of paying court costs under the Office of Adult Court Services' "fine option" component.
