6th Division Community Service Program

Offenders paying their debt to society in beneficial and productive activities

The most common and visible type of community service is roadside litter pickup. However the court has more service options available that provide work stations in numerous public, non-profit and public service organizations in our communities.

With the Sixth Division Community Service Program, the Court can provide convicted youthful offenders, truants, and curfew violators alternatives to incarceration with the opportunity to gain work experience in a supervised environment.

When youths are sentenced to community services, parents or guardians and the youth sign an agreement to fullfil the court ordered community service as an alternative to incarceration. Any fines levied by the court are still due and payable, even if community service is ordered as a sentence.

Currently, community service is assigned to one of the following locations:

  • The Pine Bluff Convention Center
  • The Salvation Army
  • SEARK Livestock Show Association
  • Neighbor to Neighbor
  • UAPB Research Farm
  • Jaycee Golf Course
  • Jefferson County Library System: Pine Bluff, White Hall, Watson Chapel, Altheimer
  • Jefferson County Red Cross
  • Pine Bluff Animal Shelter
  • Jefferson County
  • City of Pine Bluff
