Community Service and Work Crew
This program focuses on our adult offenders, as well as juveniles who have charges of delinquent or status offenses. Typically, this program is further used as an intermediate sanction for offenders who violate other community corrections programs and also is a way for clients to give back to the community. Community Service is utilized as a rewards/sanction program. During the 2018/2019 fiscal year, a total of 130 clients participated in the Community Service Program completing over 14,000 hours of service.
In an average year, the department grows over 7,000 flowers and plants for the community and places and maintains over 200 baskets and containers of the bubblegum petunias that have become an iconic tradition in downtown Logansport and throughout Cass County. Additional flowers are also planted and cared for around local parks throughout the summer months.
In the past we have supported nonprofit and church affiliations by participating in several projects including assembling grade level school supply packets for over 1,000 students for the Trinity Episcopal Church’s School Supply Giveaway, assisting in the annual Twelve Mile Fourth of July Lawnmower Race, setting up and dismantling tents and booths for public events that were hosted by Logan’s Landing, the community’s civic event and improvement organization.
