Community Service Work (CSW)

Purpose


The adult Court often utilizes community service work as a condition of probation, and probation officers will sometimes recommend work service in lieu of, or in addition to, time in custody. Jobs usually consist of unskilled labor directed to litter abatement, graffiti removal, weed control, janitorial tasks, etc. This is an option for the payment of some or all of your fees and fines. You may work off fines at a specified rate of pay per hour.

This is upon recommendation of the probation officer and approved by the Court. The Jefferson County court system includes a work crew. Offenders from all courts may participate in the work crew at the Court's discretion.
