The purpose of community service is for an offender to engage in an activity that has a positive influence on the community as a way of repaying the community for an offense that was committed.
Generally the community service must be performed in Hancock County since that is where the offense occurred. The Court maintains a list of pre-approved locations where community service can be performed however the defendant is welcome to seek other viable locations as long as that location is approved by the compliance officer. NO CREDIT WILL BE GIVEN FOR UNAPPROVED LOCATIONS.
If you have any questions about switching locations or need to seek an extension on your community service you should contact the Compliance Officer.
Failure to complete all of the community service by the assigned deadline will result in a jail term being imposed.
