Community Service Restitution Program (CSR)
The Randall County Juvenile Probation Department initiated the Community Service Restitution program in the mid 1980’s as a meaningful and tangible activity which promotes offender rehabilitation and accountability through participation in activities within the community. These activities are designed to provide a positive investment to our community, by providing constructive accountability for the impairment they have caused victims and/or the community. This is a key program in obtaining the goals of restorative justice.
More than 25 nonprofit agencies have offered their work sites for juvenile probationers to learn about responsible behavior and values.
Juvenile probation kids participate in activities that include:
- Feeding the homeless
- Cleaning area parks
- Sorting clothes at the homeless shelter
- Painting the local children’s emergency shelter
- Cleaning and sorting sports equipment at a non-profit youth sports organization
- Assist creating food packets for low income school children
- Assist sorting food at the local food bank
In 2016, more than 4,000 hours of community service were performed by the children that were referred to the juvenile probation department. By serving these hours, the participants were given the opportunity to:
- Form meaningful relationships with others;
- Develop a deeper understanding of community problems;
- Gain a sense of individual effectiveness; and
- Recognize the need for involvement
