Community Service & Probation

Knox City Court does not provide a form for your community service. You must complete your community service through Starke County Community Corrections. You may reach them by phone at (574) 772-2258 or by visiting the office at 1611 S Heaton, Knox IN. Your hours must be documented on their official letterhead and signed by an official supervisor of that organization and turned into our office. If your community service is not completed by the date the court has given you, your probation is subject to be violated.

Knox City Court is a non-reporting probation court. There is no monthly reporting, however you must keep us informed of your current address. Court costs, fines, community service (if required), and restitution must be paid before the defendant is released from probation.
