Sentencing to Service (STS)
STS is a sentencing alternative for courts that puts carefully selected nonviolent individuals to work on community improvement projects. Supervised STS crews work in parks and other public areas, frequently in combination with jail time. The Minnesota Department of Corrections, courts, and local governments operate STS. City, county, township, school districts, state, and nonprofit entities may submit project proposals. Submitted proposals should outline anticipated community improvement projects.
