Public Service

Public service work may be a condition of a juvenile or adult offender’s sentence of probation, conditional discharge or supervision. The Court may also convert a defendant’s fines to public service work at an hourly rate determined by the Court.

Public service work can only be performed for a not-for-profit organization. Coordinator of the program is Amanda Lamb. She can be contacted by phone at (815) 732-1180, Ext. 378, during normal business hours.
