Funded by Oklahoma County, the Community Service Program works with district judges in handling criminal defendants who have been required to perform community service as part of their sentences. The program's mission is to require offenders to pay a debt to society.
The program places clients with government agencies and non-profit organizations, which are approved by district judges.
Participants Carefully Placed in Programs
Most persons placed by the program are first-time, non-violent offenders who have received probationary sentences for felonies, misdemeanors, and traffic cases such as Driving Under the Influence (DUI). Offenders do not work with children or elderly in day care centers or nursing homes.
