Community Service Restitution

Community Service Restitution is designed to hold offenders accountable for their actions and instill the concept that public order offending does have consequences. It also provides a vehicle for offenders to restore the community for the harm they have done. One of the core principles of the Downtown Austin Community Court is holding offenders accountable for their behavior. Offenders receive swiftly imposed; yet meaningful, community service that the court monitors daily for compliance.
