Litter Reduction Program:
The Litter Reduction Program (LRP) began in 2019 as a jail diversion program for low-level offenders. This program allows offenders to perform community service in Prince George County with the goal being to positively affect the community the offender harmed with his or her criminal behavior. The Commonwealth's Attorney's Office works in conjunction with Riverside Criminal Justice Agency and the Prince George Sheriff's Office to supervise and administer the Program. When you see orange trash bags on the roadside, that is the work of the persons in the Litter Reduction Program.
February 2021--340 bags of trash collected
January 2021--260 bags of trash collected
June 8, 2020 through December 23, 2020--1,379 bags of trash collected
