What is the Community Service Program?

  • The Community Services (CS) Program is a part of the Probation Services Department of the Washington County Court System. The Community Services Program permits adults to work off fines and court costs.
  • Fines and costs paid off at prevailing Commonwealth minimum wage rate, currently $7.25/hour
  • 2 Options:
    • Work with our Community Service Work Crew
    • Work at any non-profit agency (Churches, Municipalities, Senior Center...)
  • Community Service CANNOT be used for restitution

What is the FITS Program?

  • FITS – Furlough Into Service
  • The FITS Program allows Participants incarcerated at the W.C.C.F., including those sentenced to weekends and/or work release, the opportunity to reduce their obligation to The Washington County Court System at the prevailing Commonwealth minimum wage rate for all fines, fees, and costs associated with their respective cases.
  • The FITS Program takes out Participants to perform large-scale projects on weekends and smaller projects on weekdays.

This CS/FITS Program won the Governor’s Award for Innovative Community/Governmental Initiatives in 1999.

Municipalities, boroughs, cities, and non-profit agencies in Washington County interested in project assistance from either the Community Services Program or the FITS Program should contact the Community Services Office. All major projects are generally scheduled six months in advance.

Make all inquiries for CS or FITS projects to the Community Services Program Office by calling: (724)250-6563.
