Community Corrections Intake Process
Persons sentenced to probation supervision must report immediately to Petersburg Community Corrections after Court for an intake appointment. If required to serve jail time, a probationer must report within 24 hours of release, or on Monday before 11:00 am, if released on a weekend. During the initial intake appointment, you will complete necessary paperwork. The main focus of the intake is information gathering, so that we can best understand how we can help you and determine what the Court has ordered.
When you leave the intake appointment you will know your assigned Probation Officer, have a schedule appointment with the Probation Officer, and receive instructions about what documentation to bring to your follow-up appointment.
If it becomes necessary to reschedule an intake appointment, one should call the main number (804) 861-4275Call: (804) 861-4275 Ext #4275 for a new appointment and reporting instructions. Intake appointments can only be rescheduled one time, except in the case of certain emergencies.
What documentation do I need to bring for my follow-up appointment?
Proof of Residence

Probation Supervision/Intervention Fee

The fees are due within 30 days of your intake appointment in the form of a money order or cashier’s check made payable to the CITY OF PETERSBURG TREASURER’S OFFICE.
