    ACCVolunteer@pbcgov.org a copy of your court paperwork, a headshot picture of yourself for your community service profile and the signed Waiver of Liability .
    • All court appointed community service workers must consent to a background screening which includes fingerprinting. Once all of the items above are received, a member of the volunteer team will call you as your SSN is needed to set up the background screening.
