Community Corrections

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.

 

What do we do?

  • Conduct Risk Assessments using the validated statewide Virginia Pretrial Risk Assessment Instrument (VPRAI) that consists of interviews, criminal history checks, and background investigations of jailed defendants prior to court arraignment
  • Recommendations to the court regarding a defendant’s release on bond pending trial
  • Supervision of defendants ordered to pretrial supervision as a condition of bond
  • Monitoring of court-ordered conditions of bond that may include drug and alcohol testing
  • Information and referral to services
  • Written progress reports to court on defendant compliance with supervision
