Suffolk City Council has approved a series of grants worth more than $30,000 for city departments.

The city also received a $1,959 grant from the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services to go toward the operating expenses of the Community Corrections Program for the Fifth Judicial District. The city is the program administrator and fiscal agent of the program, which provides a number of punitive sanctions and punishments for the Fifth Judicial District, General District and Juvenile and Domestic Relations courts.

The program serves defendants who are placed under probation supervision when they have been either found guilty, or the evidence was sufficient for finding of guilt, for Class 1 or 2 misdemeanors or non-violent Class 5 or 6 felonies. Its service area includes the cities of Suffolk and Franklin, as well as Isle of Wight and Southampton counties.
