"It is the ultimate goal of this office to assist defendants in maintaining their compliance with the Judges Orders. We will treat each person with dignity and respect and we hope the client will respond the same way to us." and "When contacting Library Patrons it is our goal to remind them of the overdue items, in hopes they will promptly return the item(s) to the Library" states Dianna Spieker, Tom Green County Treasurer.
Tom Green County Compliance Office serves both County Courts at Law and all four Justice of the Peace Courts and provides collection for Tom Green County Library.
Mission Statement: The Compliance Office will collect Court costs and fines for the Tom Green County Courts at Law in the most efficient and professional manner possible. A firm but courteous approach shall be utilized, in which defendants are considered "clients".
Objective: The Compliance Office has two main objectives. The first is to enhance compliance with court-ordered sanctions by increasing the payment and/or other disposition (e.g., community service) of fines and court costs. The second objective is to relieve a judge of routine collection matters, freeing the judge to devote his or her time to judicial matters.

Set Up and Implementation: The Office of Court Administrators Collections Program,in conjunction with the State Comptroller's Office, requires all fines and court costs due at pleading/sentencing. The Compliance Office staff may review and evaluate any request for extension of time for payment. Payment terms can be restricted.
Processing: At pleading/sentencing, all fines and court costs should be assessed by the judge with all of the usual considerations, except whether the client is prepared to pay the assessment in total. The client and counsel are notified in advance as to when payment is due. If the client requests time to pay, the judge will direct him/her to the Compliance OfficeAdditional Services: Compliance Office also processes collections on behalf of the Tom Green County Library. This effort is to contact Library patrons who have borrowed materials from the Tom Green County Library and have neglected to return them. The goal is to have the material returned so that other patrons have the opportunity to utilize the materials that were not returned in a timely manner.
