What are the requirements and what do I need to bring?

Court-ordered Community Service

  • We are only able to accept traffic, DUI citations, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
  • Please bring a picture ID and proof of your citation (paperwork that verifies the type of citation you received, hours required, as well as the name/number of any case worker or attorney you may have) to orientation.

University or Civic Organization Community Service

  • Bring picture ID and applicable school or club paperwork or contact information for verification to orientation.

What will I be doing?

Duties may include cleaning enclosures, washing dishes, folding laundry, shredding newspaper, filling water dishes, and various duties as assigned. Community service hours are available 7 days a week, including holidays.
