Juvenile Detention Home - Treatment Programs

Post-D Program

Chesterfield Detention Home’s Post-Dispositional (Post-D) Program was established in 2004. Governed by the Code of Virginia and certified by the Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), this is a six-month program that provides the court judges, who preside in Chesterfield and Colonial Heights, an alternative to committing juveniles to the Department of Juvenile Justice.  Services are designed to meet the individual behavioral, educational and treatment needs of the residents, while they remain connected to their families and community.

Objectives

  • Incorporate awareness, accountability, and responsibility to aid the residents in reclaiming their futures by assisting them to achieve behavioral and cognitive changes
  • Facilitate resilience in development to risk factors and encourage engagement with their families and positive activities within the community

Referrals

Probation Officers for the Twelfth District Court Service Unit may initiate a request for a child’s participation in the Post-D Program who meet criteria as established by the Code of Virginia and the Chesterfield Juvenile Detention Home.

Admission Requirements

  • Be at least fourteen (14) years of age or older
  • Be a resident of Chesterfield County or the City of Colonial Heights
  • Has an IQ of at least 75
  • Has not been released from the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice within the previous 18 months
  • Other placements will not serve the best interests of the juvenile
  • Parent/legal guardian must be available to participate actively in the program
  • Found to have committed an offense, which, if committed by an adult, would be punishable by confinement in a state or local corrections facility (eligible for commitment to DJJ—suspended commitment initiated)
  • Has not been found guilty of and is not currently charged with a violent juvenile felony
  • The juvenile is placed on probation or continues probation

Please note: Health insurance is preferred to assist in meeting the needs of the child. Parents/legal guardians must provide medications.

For more information, please contact the Post-D Program.

Community Placement Program

Chesterfield Detention Home’s Community Placement Program (CPP) was established in 2016, in partnership with the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), to provide residential services with community reintegration planning for committed juveniles. Services are designed to meet the individual behavioral, educational and treatment needs of the residents, while they remain connected to their families and community.

Objectives

  • Incorporate awareness, accountability, and responsibility to aid the residents in reclaiming their futures by assisting them to achieve behavioral and cognitive changes
  • Facilitate resilience in development to risk factors and encourage engagement with their families and positive activities in support of their transition back into their community

Referrals

The DJJ Juvenile Correction Center Counselor, in collaboration with the Parole Officer, may initiate a request for a juvenile’s participation in the CPP who meet criteria established by DJJ and the Chesterfield Detention Home. Residents are referred through the DJJ case management system and final approval comes from the DJJ Central Classification and Review Committee in collaboration with the Chesterfield Detention Home.

Admission Requirements

  • Juveniles who meet criteria for commitment who are age eighteen (18) and younger, sentenced to the DJJ
  • Have an IQ of at least 70
  • Sentence is indeterminate commitment and length of stay at DJJ between two to twelve months

Please Note: residents with a determinate commitment, or lengths of stay exceeding twelve months, may be taken into consideration under special circumstances and at the sole discretion of CJDH Administration.

For more information, please contact the Community Placement Program.
