Second District Court Service Unit
Virginia Beach CSU

The 2nd District Court Service Unit serves the City of Virginia Beach, which has a population of about 433,000 with about 71,000 school age children. The city has a mixed population of suburban and rural areas without a typical central downtown type of environment. The city also has a large military population, a large tourist industry, and maintains a fairly large agricultural environment. The Court Service Unit operates multiple Probation and Parole Units, an Intake Unit, and a Chins Unit. The Probation and parole Units offer mandated supervision, as well as, securing many community based services; such as outpatient sex offender services, in-home services, substance abuse services, community based Group Homes, as well as residential treatment services through Comprehensive Services Act funding. Our Intake Unit processes more than 13,000 cases each year. We also provide status offender and first offender groups for children, and a support and educational group for the parents of group members. Currently provided are groups for identified gang members and a support group for their parents. We also offer a spouse abuse support program (FANS), which is fully staffed by volunteers. We maintain a very active volunteer program that utilizes about 80 volunteers on a regular basis. We also provide a Street Law education Group as well as a Status Offender Seminar, which offers groups to both the child and parents. All service areas receive support from our Clerical Unit. The CSU has a main office located in the Juvenile Court Building in the Judicial Complex at the Municipal Center, and an Annex located in Princess Anne Executive Park, which is located across the street from the Municipal Center. Administrative offices, intake, Chins Unit and most Probation services are located in the main office. Parole and some Probation services are located at the Annex Office.
