The Community Service Program was formalized to provide a meaningful restitution program for offenders who have been mandated by the courts to perform community service hours for infractions such as DUI, suspended license, no insurance and various other misdemeanor violations. The program may offer inmates the opportunity to earn early release or otherwise offer probationers the opportunity to pay their debt to society if they are unable to meet the fine imposed.

The unity and spirit of cooperation are key ingredients in the success and effectiveness of the Community Service Program. The program saves money, works for the offenders, the detention center, staff, the county departments, and most importantly, for the citizens of Henry County. This program is proof that a positive approach to problem solving can truly produce positive and productive results.
