The Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice protects the public by preparing court-involved youth to be successful citizens.

The Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) pro­vides services to juveniles and families by operating 32 court service units (CSUs) and three juvenile correctional centers (JCCs), including the Reception and Diagnos­tic Center (RDC). DJJ audits and certifies 35 CSUs (including three locally-operated CSUs), 18 group homes, 24 juvenile detention centers (JDCs), and three JCCs. The Board of Ju­venile Justice regulates and provides oversight for these programs and facilities.

To accomplish its mission, DJJ uses an integrated approach to juvenile justice. It brings together current research and best practices to better understand and modify delinquent behavior; to meet the needs of offenders, victims, and communities; and to manage activities in a responsible and proactive manner.
