THE COMMUNITY SERVICE ORDER PROGRAM SENTENCES OFFENDERS TO SPEND A CERTAIN NUMBER OF HOURS HELPING IN THE COMMUNITY INSTEAD OF SENDING THEM TO CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTIONS. IN SOME CASES DIRECT RESTITUTION IS MADE TO THE VICTIM; FOR EXAMPLE, VANDALS MAY BE ORDERED TO REPAIR THE DAMAGE THEY CAUSED.

THE LEGAL PROBLEMS ARISING IN CANADA HAVE BEEN SOLVED, AND COURTS HAVE URGED EXPANSION OF THE CONCEPT FOR FIRST TIME OFFENDERS AND THOSE CONVICTED OF MINOR CRIMES. (GLR)
