The Probation Service administers the Community Service Scheme. Community Service is the name given to a sentence which can be imposed by all the Bailiwick's Courts which allows an offender the opportunity to do unpaid work, normally as an alternative to a custodial sentence.
The Community Service Scheme was introduced in the Bailiwick in 2007 but is an important and well-established community-based sentence which has been used in the United Kingdom since 1977 and Jersey since 1982.
Placement beneficiaries must either be charitable or other non-profit-making organisations.
Community Service is performed by offenders, either working on an individual basis and reporting directly to a beneficiary, or as part as a supervised work party group supervised by Probation Service supervisors.
Orders made by the Alderney and Sark Courts are performed in those Islands.
