Virginia DOC Community Corrections – Community Corrections’ primary goal is public safety. In Virginia, public safety is defined as the quality of life that allows our citizens to feel secure in their everyday lives by being free from danger, injury and damage caused by those who choose not to obey the law. Our approach to this goal through professional supervision of offenders under our purview is “A Balanced Approach.” This practice emphasizes the dual role of providing supervision and services for probationers and parolees.
