Community Service

Community Service
The Community Service Program was started in April 1998.  This program is used as a sentencing option for minor, nonviolent criminal and traffic violators and in lieu of paying fines when genuine hardship exists.  By allowing defendants to work at non-profits organizations, jail overcrowding is lessened, tax dollars are saved and something positive is given back to the community.

At any given time over 200 people are performing Community Service at one of the 175+ participating agencies in Eau Claire County.   These agencies include; thrift stores, churches, food pantries, animal shelters and government agencies.  Each year we receive numerous letters from the agencies praising the work done by our Community Service Participants.

                                                             Hours are Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.       
Please call (715) 839-1869 to make special arrangements to make payment arrangements or make a payment outside of regular scheduled business hours.  The office is located on the 2nd floor of the government center.

You will be denied participation in Community Service if you have not set up an appointment within 3 days of your court date.
