Community service orders - A to Z

Service Outline

A Community Service Order, or Community Service as a requirement of Probation, is an alternative to a prison sentence. Offenders on community service undertake supervised voluntary work for community groups and individuals who are unable to carry out the work for themselves. 

If the person on a Community Service Order/Requirement does not perform the work he/she will be reported to Court and the Sheriff/Judge will decide if the Order is to continue or another sentence passed instead.
