DRC is a joke. Wood counties "legal" system puts people in that program when they can't afford a real attorney and have no real options other than taking whatever BS plea the prosecutor is willing to let them by with. Then they are told they have to go to DRC for an evaluation which would lead you to believe that they would do an evaluation and decide if there is any merit to the charge you pled to or if it was a mistake and not an actual issue requiring counselling but no, they automatically put you in the program and treat you as a criminal and a liar and will actually call you those things. They create criminals from ordinarily law abiding citizens that couldn't afford legal help

LO: These people are those convicted of some crime, sentenced to community service, and this is how they are serving their sentence. Needing small amounts of money to assist in having the proper cleaning agents doesn't necessarily mean corruption. That will happen when somebody passes a law that only certified graffiti-removal specialists can do the work. Then the work done now as community service will be done for much greater cost and the taxpayers will be on the hook for the money.

I think that people that receive welfare should be joining them. At least then they are doing something to earn that free income.

If people didn't break the law then there would be no crime. Darn, it's easy to be Liberal, just wish all the problems away. If people didn't break the law they wouldn't have these "clients" to help in the cleanup, regardless.

If residents would take pride in their communities and private property the DRC, volunteers, city and county employees would not have to clean up the garbage.
