Community service work is assigned as a condition of a court order.
Work assignments are made in blocks or sessions by the seriousness of the offense. Williamson County Public Service sessions are equivalent of one day of work (8 hours) and will begin promptly at 7am on most Saturday mornings and will end at 3pm.
Note: You may schedule to work your Public Service hours at any Non-Profit organization that you choose within the community. (Please provide the hours served to the Youth Service Officer assigned to you).
The maximum number of juveniles allowed on one work crew is 12. Each crew will consist of two supervisors.
Successful completion and/or failure to complete the work sessions will be reported to the juvenile's Youth Service Officer or Probation Officer. Failure to complete the work sessions may result in an immediate return to the court for further proceedings.
Community service must be completed within the appropriate time frame listed below. If the juvenile is unable to complete their public service sessions within the allotted time, their parent or legal guardian must notify the Public Service Coordinator so an alternate schedule can be done.

The program concentrates on the needs of the community by working in partnership with those agencies that need services. In addition, the program responds to requests from other government officials as well as the general public. For instance, the public service work program regularly cleans and maintains many public areas especially after events (parks, schools and roadside trash pickup).
