Community Service Program Mission Statement: To develop a meaningful way to save tax dollars, address jail overcrowding, and improve our community.

 

 

Community Service Program Background

The Eau Claire County Community Service Program was created in April of 1998 by Judge Benjamin D. Proctor as a way to improve our community while addressing jail overcrowding.

Adults who are accepted into the program have the opportunity to serve various community agencies as an alternative to incarceration.

The Community Service Program supports the traditional sentencing goals of punishment, reparation, restitution, and rehabilitation while simultaneously benefitting the offender, community, victims, and the court.


Program Eligibility

Community Service is primarily used as a sentencing option for nonviolent criminal violations. The program offers structure, continuity, and consistency for defendants that are enrolled in the program.

Community Service can also be a requirement of other court programs (DAGP, JRI-OWI, Treatment Court), or as a condition of Probation and Parole.


Community Service Opportunities

The Community Service Program coordinates opportunities for program participants to complete their court-ordered hours with non-profit, government, and educational organizations.

After a participant is placed at an approved agency, the Community Service Coordinator provides case management through monitoring the placement, verifying completed court-ordered hours, and e-filing proper documentation with the court.

New evidence-based opportunities to complete Community Service hours are continually being added to the program; these opportunities are needs-based and focused on reducing recidivism.


Community Service Time Sheet

The time sheet is to be used to track completed monthly Community Service hours. All program participants must turn time sheets in by the 7th day of the Month.

Agency-signed time sheets should be dropped off in person, faxed, or emailed to the Community Service Office.
