Serving the largest Virginia City west of Richmond, the 23A Court Service Unit provides juvenile probation, parole, and intake services. Comprehensive pre-dispositional reports are prepared to assist the Court in making decisions regarding juveniles before the Court. The CSU utilizes a diagnostic approach in the development of these reports including the use of the balanced approach philosophy and graduated sanctions in their recommendations.

VJCCCA funded services for court involved youth include assessment and brief intervention, anger management, extended day services, intensive supervision, outreach detention and pre and post dispositional electronic monitoring.

Individual and group substance abuse education and relapse prevention services for identified youth are provided. Group Community Service opportunities for the completion of Court-ordered work projects are also supervised by VJCCCA staff.

Diversion is utilized to address delinquent complaints for which the intervention of the Court does not appear to be essential. The CSU maintains a 21% diversion rate of all criminal intake complaints. Volunteer services provided by Youth Support Services to support diversion include individual counseling, offense education, family advocacy, and a Shoplifters program.

The CSU works closely with a variety of community agencies and programs such as Boys and Girls Club, Straight Street Ministries, Total Action Against Poverty,, GED programs, Vocational Training Programs, and various counseling and human service agencies.
