Offenders will be required to make reparation for their crimes through performance of community services. The project monitors compliance with release conditions. Project operations also include offender selection, worksite selection and oversight, court/probation notification activities, referrals to human services and management of accident/liability reports.

This program began operation in 1992. This project provides all criminal court clients, initially unable to post bail, the opportunity to be interviewed to determine eligibility for release from jail. The interview process objectively assesses the defendant's qualifications for release through release on his/her own recognizance (ROR), or, where the court determines the risk of absconding to be greater, through release under supervision (RUS). Program operations include screening, eligibility determinations, monitoring functions where appropriate and court notification of those who fail to satisfy release requirements.
