Community Services Labor
Community service labor may be ordered by the court for any offender placed under the supervision of ACS. 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. ACS is responsible for placement and monitoring of each offender's progress in conjunction with the delegated work site supervisor. In Fiscal Year 2008 alone over 5,100 hours were completed. Multiplied by current minimum wage, this is approximately $34,000 of free labor for the county. Offenders who are deemed indigent by the courts may also be permitted to perform community service labor in lieu of paying court costs under ACS's "fine option" component.
