Community Service Program

The Sheriff’s Community Service program allows participants to complete their sentence in the community by converting jail days to community service hours. Participants serve their time with one of our 40+ partners. Time is either converted at a rate of 8 hours per 1 day of jail or as ordered directly from the judge. Participants are required to work 20 hours per month until their time is completed.

Eligibility requirements for the Sheriff’s Community Service Program

  • Participants must be court-ordered to “All Options” or “Sheriff’s Community Service”
  • Participants must serve at one of the approved Sheriff’s Community Service providers
  • The Sheriff’s Community Service providers set their own restrictions and participants may not qualify for community service depending on their charge
  • Participants must be capable of completing the physical labor associated with the program
