Description
 
Community service work orders are penal sanctions requiring offenders to complete a specified number of hours of unpaid work in nonprofit or governmental agencies. This article provides a description of the structure & logic of community service programs. The program model described is based on detailed study of 14 American community service programs implemented by a wide range of agencies. Two types of programs were identified in the 14 studied. One group combined community service with other sanctions & services, including financial restitution. These “combined sanctions” programs served primarily felony level offenders. A second group of programs required that offenders complete only community service & typically did not provide other services or impose other sanctions. These “sole sanction” programs served primarily misdemeanant offenders, although some admitted a few felons & some a few juvenile offenders. Illus.
