This program began operation in 1988. This project provides the criminal courts with a sentencing alternative through the use of community service for offenders with sentences of adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, conditional discharge or probation. Offenders will be required to make reparation for their crimes through performance of community service. The project monitors compliance with release conditions. Project operations also include offender selection, worksite selection and oversight, court/probation notification activities, referrals to human services and management of accident/liability reports.

This program began operation in 1985. This project will provide all criminal court clients, initially unable to post bail, the opportunity to be interviewed to determine eligibility for release from jail. The interview process will objectively assess the defendant's qualifications for release through release on his/her own recognizance (ROR), or, where the court determines the risk of absconding to be greater, through release under supervision (RUS). Program operations include screening, eligibility determinations, monitoring functions where appropriate, and court notification of those who fail to satisfy release requirements.
