What is Community Corrections?

The Community Corrections Program works in conjunction with other government and community agencies to provide a system of intermediate punishments and services for adults referred by Henrico Courts. Our target populations are those defendants or offenders who may not require institutional custody, thereby reducing the use of jail facilities at County taxpayers’ expense.
