Enhanced Supervision and Sentencing Options

Service Work Alternative Program
The Service Work Alternative Program (SWAP) is an Enhanced Supervision and Sentencing Option for adults who have been convicted of a nonviolent crime and have been ordered by the criminal courts to perform community service. Participants perform their mandated hours in a structured, supervised program at various not-for-profit sites located throughout the county. Emphasis is placed on encouraging participants to learn new job skills and gain self esteem while giving back to the community (Restorative Justice) for the negative effects of their offending behavior.
