Youth have different opportunities to complete their community service obligation depending upon the level of supervision they need. Both opportunities are focused on giving back to the community through repairing the harm that has done by the youth’s criminal activities or violations of diversion/probation agreements.
Youth placed on the divisions work crew will complete landscaping, litter pick up, vehicle washing and general cleaning at or within the juvenile services building. There may be times that youth will complete community service hours during special community functions. Division staff will provide the needed transportation to these functions.
