Community Service

Community Service is an alternative sentencing program which the courts may use instead of fines or incarceration. You will be required to provide volunteer labor on a work crew or at a community non-profit agency. For a copy of the current non-profit list, please contact communityservice@co.washington.or.us or (503) 846-3730.

If you have been ordered to perform Community Service as a condition of bench (informal) probation, it will be necessary for you to attend a group intake at Community Corrections. The sign-up board is at the receptionist’s desk (503-846-3400). If you miss your Community Service intake appointment you must reschedule for another one as soon as possible. A $5 fee applies to no-shows.

If you are on formal probation, your probation officer will either refer you to the group intake or individually explain how the program works. The Court will set a time limit for you to complete your Community Service hours.  If your assignment is not completed within the established time-frame, the Court or your probation officer will be informed. Failure to complete your community service may result in a violation hearing or a warrant issued for your arrest.

A $40.00 Community Service fee is assessed on all community service cases, unless waived by the Court.2
