East Point Municipal Court seeks agencies to provide community service

The Municipal Court of East Point is currently seeking agencies to provide community service to enhance the social welfare and general well-being of the community, according to a press release. Such agencies may include educational institutions and religious organizations that are nonprofit corporations or qualified as tax exempt under 26 USC Section 501c3, as it existed on March 1, 2018.

Community service will be uncompensated work by an offender with an agency pursuant to an order of the Court as a condition of probation or in lieu of payment of a financial obligation imposed by a Court.

Agencies desiring to allow offenders to participate in their program shall file with the Court a letter of application showing eligibility, number of offenders who may be placed with the agency, work to be performed by the offender, and provisions for supervising the offender.

An agency selected by the Court shall work offenders who are assigned to the agency by the Court. If an offender

violates a Court Order, the agency shall report such violation to the Court Liaison who shall maintain supervision over allowed agencies as the probation department supervises the violator.

If an agency violates any Court Order or Article governing agencies the offender shall be removed from the agency and the agency shall no longer be eligible to participate in the Court’s community service or education advancement program.

Agencies are to forward letters of application to Malcolm Mitchell, Court Liaison, Municipal Court City of East Point, 2727 East Point Street, East Point, GA 30344 or email them to mlmitchell@eastpointcity.org.
