The Montgomery County Alternative Community Services Program is a criminal justice diversion program for adult offenders who have committed offenses and infractions against individuals or the community and who perform community services as a sanction. 

The primary mission of the program is to provide an alternative, meaningful and cost effective program in which offenders perform community service as a means to dispose of their criminal case, reduce financial impact to the court and the community.
