Community Corrections Services - History

Community Corrections Services (CCS) is an umbrella agency providing a collection of Community Corrections Services for Chesterfield County and the City of Colonial Heights, Virginia.  The Department was created in 1981, as part of the Community Diversion Incentive Act. Initially, the Department provided intensive probation services. In 1988 a pretrial release unit was established that conducted pretrial investigations and provided supervision for pretrial persons awaiting trial.  The Comprehensive Community Corrections Act and Pretrial Services Act became effective July 1, 1995 creating the agency that exists today.  Core services include local probation and pretrial services. The agency works under the advisory guidance of the Community Criminal Justice Board.  Our goal is to increase public safety by assisting offenders to responsibly remain in the community.

In addition to our core services programming has grown to meet the needs of the community and our criminal justice stakeholders.  In 1998, a Day Reporting Center (DRC) was established to provide specialized supervision and treatment for offenders in Chesterfield County and the City of Colonial Heights. In 2012, this program was redesigned to the Center of Risk Reduction (CORR).  CORR addresses individualized client needs in a day reporting center structure.  Research drives the CORR programming and includes assessment of risk; the big eight primary risk factors; individualized programming; accountability; and appropriate dosages of treatment.  CORR provides a cost-effective alternative to jail for non-violent offenders.

In 2000, the Chesterfield/Colonial Heights Adult Drug Court was established in partnership with the Judiciary, Commonwealth Attorney, Community Services Board, Police, and CCS. The Drug Court serves individuals charged with a felony who have a substance addiction. The Drug Court provides intensive substance abuse treatment and community supervision.  In 2003, the Dual Treatment Track (DTT) was implemented to serve defendants in jail, awaiting trial and diagnosed with a serious mental illness and a substance addiction.  The program provides intensive supervision and integrated treatment.

Lastly, the Domestic and Sexual Violence Resource Center was established in 1996, to assist in the development of policy to better address violence issues and to help facilitate a coordinated community response to domestic violence. In 2001, a victim advocate position was created to work with victims of domestic violence.

Chesterfield/Colonial Heights Community Corrections offers a unique array of services that makes it a premiere community based program.
