Community Court Services

Community Court Services (CCS), a program of the Sheriff's Office, is focused on jail diversion and rehabilitation. Our mission is to reduce recidivism by fostering self-reliance. We accomplish this by addressing unemployment, homelessness, food scarcity, substance abuse, mental health, transportation needs, and other challenges. We provide case management and referrals to community resources.

More importantly, we provide accountability which helps ensure success. For participants who are ordered to attend, we document their efforts to reach court-ordered objectives. If a participant is failing to meet the program requirements, we work directly with the individual to correct the situation and also inform the relevant courts.

Who is Community Court Services for?

Community Court Services primarily serves individuals whose lives are impacted by involvement in the criminal justice system, but is open to anyone in the community seeking assistance.

What happens when I want to join the program?

Each new participant goes through an initial intake interview. This interview is designed to identify risk factors or potential roadblocks between individuals and self-sufficiency. Then an individualized plan is developed outlining a specific road-map of success for each participant.

How do you achieve excellence? Mindset, Discipline, Commitment, Consistency.

Some of the risk factors we screen for and address are:

  • Unemployment
  • Education
  • Homelessness
  • Food Scarcity
  • Substance Abuse
  • Mental Health
  • Reliable Transportation
