The Richmond Juvenile Detention Center’s Post-Dispositional Program is governed by the Code of Virginia and certified through the Department of Juvenile Justice. It provides the 13th Court Service Unit a secure residential alternative to commitment to DJJ for City of Richmond youths. These non-violent juvenile offenders from ages fourteen to seventeen years of age are on suspended commitments to DJJ and can spend up to six months in the Post-D Program. The program is designed to meet their individual, behavioral, educational and treatment needs.
