Alternative Community Service Work
Volunteer Prince William (VPW) is the coordinating agency for all court-related alternative community service work (ACS) in Prince William County (PWC), for both adult and juvenile cases. We routinely process referrals from the 31st General District Court and PWC probation offices, with our fees paid by the county. Cases from out of district jurisdiction courts or probation offices, as well as self-referrals opting to perform ACS prior to court, are subject to a fee of $100 payable at intake. Payment can be made by cash (exact amount only), money order made payable to Volunteer Prince William or credit card. A credit card can only be used by physically coming into the office for payment processing.
ACS clients provide relevant background information, sign a contract to perform ACS, and are then referred to an ACS site as convenient as possible to their home location and schedule. The entire intake process takes only 15-20 minutes. Upon notice of completion from the ACS site, we report the success directly to the appropriate local authority, or provide a letter for the client to coordinate with other jurisdictions and agencies.
Intake interviews are conducted by walk-in or email weekdays only, from 9am - 4pm. Please review your court date and take this into consideration.
If you have a completion letter, please email or FAX it to us using the information below. You may also drop it off at the office during business hours or slip it through the mail slot in our front door.
Links are provided below to the documents needed to start the Intake Process. If you are 18 or older please sign the "Adult Waiver and Release" form. If you are 17 or younger please sign the "Juvenile Waiver and Release" form. The "Client Intake" and "Standards of Conduct" forms apply to both adults and juveniles.
If you have questions about the process or forms please call 571-292-5316. Every effort is made to answer calls as they come in; however, duties sometimes require staff to step away from their desk. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not leave a message we will not know to call you back. Please do not tell your PO "no one called me back".
