The Community Service Work Unit is responsible for the administration of Community Services Orders, whereby offenders actively contribute to the community through working at community (not for profit) or Government organisations.
Offenders can be sentenced to between 20 and 500 hours of community service work. This is a reparative and rehabilitative community based sentencing option.
ACT Corrective Services operates a number of supervised work crews made up of individuals who are required to undertake community service activities. These work crews are fully supervised or monitored by ACT Corrective Services staff.
Work crews operate on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays only. Work placements are usually flexible and can be arranged to suit the employer and the offender.
