Juveniles who are granted diversion or placed on probation by the District Court
will be required to complete community service work as a condition of their
diversion or probation. The exact number of hours will be determined by the
current offense and the juvenile’s prior record.
Juveniles shall seek out their own non-profit organization, and request
permission to complete the assigned hours. Court Services Officers (CSOs) can
offer suggestions. Juveniles will be required to provide proof of the completed
hours to the CSO in the form of a letter from the individual who supervised the
community service work. This correspondence from the supervising party
must be submitted on the agency's letterhead.
The following are examples of acceptable non-profit organizations.
- Community Centers
- Youth Court
If you have questions regarding the completion of community service work hours,
please contact your supervising officer, or the Court Services Juvenile Division
