More and more probationers are being sentenced to do community restitution (work service) as part of the terms of their probation. Depending on whether the probationer is on standard or intensive probation, he or she could be sentenced to anywhere from 10 hours total of community restitution to 40 hours a month every month that he or she is on probation.
The Coconino County Adult Probation Community Restitution Program has a partnership with over 125 non-profit agencies and government entities. We screen all probationers to match the needs and circumstances of the receiving agency. At any given time, we have a labor force of approximately 300 clients, all with different skills and abilities.
