Community Service | Jury Duty | Volunteer Opportunities
Funded by Oklahoma County, the Community Service Program works with district judges in handling criminal defendants who have been required to perform community service as part of their sentences. The program's mission is to require offenders to pay a debt to society. The program places clients with government agencies and non-profit organizations, which are approved by district judges. Most persons placed by the program are first-time, non-violent offenders who have received probationary sentences for felonies, misdemeanors, and traffic cases such as Driving Under the Influence (DUI). Offenders do not work with children or elderly in day care centers or nursing homes.
If you may be a juror in the future, we recommend you read the notice to prospective jurors and see who can and cannot be a juror. Learn more here.
The Social Services Department, along with volunteers from RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program), TASK (Teaching and Saving Kids), and other community members maintain a vegetable garden and a fruit orchard to provide fresh produce to older adults who receive meals at Oklahoma County Senior Nutrition's congregate meal sites.

SHINE has specific programs for each contributing facet of our community. SHINE stands for Start Helping Impacted Neighborhoods Everywhere. It was created by Oklahoma County Commissioner, Brian Maughan, to better serve the public and to make low-level offenders do true community service.
