Community service is an alternative sentence where offenders work for nonprofit or governmental organizations as volunteers.
Any nonprofit organization that has a 501C3 tax exempt status and liability insurance is eligible. However, all community service is performed and monitored through the Otsego County Work Camp.
If you have a medical problem that you believe would interfere with your community service activity, you must present some type of document from your doctor describing what your limitations are. If you are ruled ineligible, the judge will be sent this document to make a determination. Even if you have some physical limitations, a position may still be found for you.
