Work Projects

CalTransCrew-feathered

The Work Projects program is an alternative sentencing option for both adult and juvenile offenders. Probationers are referred to this program by Superior Court to complete public service work, often instead of paying fines or serving time in custody. The Probation Department contracts with local, state and federal non-profit agencies to provide 8-12 person crews to assist with litter and weed abatement, firebreaks, culvert cleanout, and numerous other tasks to preserve and enhance the environment. The enrollment fees paid by program participants and the revenues received for the use of the crews are designed to recover the cost of maintaining the program.
