Community Enhancement Through Community Service
In the spring of 2007, the Amherst Police Department initiated the Community Enhancement Through Community Service Program. The basic premise behind the program is to have individuals who have committed minor offenses in Amherst, for example open container violations, noise violations, etc., complete court-ordered community service here in town. Through this program, students have completed a variety of community-based projects including a clean-up of the Jessie’s House Playground, work on the Amherst Police Department's Adventure-Based Ropes Course, and other various clean-up jobs around the town. Suggestions for work projects are currently being solicited by the department to be completed in the spring of 2008. If you have a project idea, or if you are a non-profit organization in Amherst that could benefit from this program, please contact Detective Brian Johnson at 413-259-3176 or e-mail him at email@example.com.
