Many courts will mandate community service as a part of a sentence. Your lawyer might also request that the court permit you to perform community service instead of paying court fines if you are unable to afford the fines. Many non-profit organizations will accept court mandated volunteers but for safety, security, and liability reasons some worksites will not accept those with felony convictions or defendants who have committed violent crimes.
Getting started with community service..
Before you begin working hours for court ordered community service, you should first make sure that the organization is approved by your court. Some courts will not permit community service at your school or church while others freely allow it. Your probation officer should be able to confirm that the non-profit organization, that you have selected will meet your sentencing obligations.
You will need to make sure that you maintain good records of every date and hour worked. You should also make sure that you sign in and out on the agency?s work log sheet if they provide one or our community service timesheet if the worksite does not have a timesheet.
Be prepared to provide proof of your identity as well as papers to document what you have been convicted of. Some organizations will also require you to complete an application, a volunteer orientation, a test or sometimes even a health screening test for tuberculosis or other infectious diseases.
Where can I do my court appointed community service?.. Finding a place to volunteer is not as easy as it might seem. If you are a juvenile, it can become even harder. Contact us by signing up for our program above and we will help you get started with Court Ordered Community Service.
