Community Partnerships & Involvement

Citizen's Court Academy

Citizens' Court Academy is a five-week program to acquaint citizens with the courts in Hampton. The first session presents an overview of our courts, and the remaining weeks are spent in the courtroom hearing from judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and representatives of the many agencies used by the courts in criminal cases, ending with a mock trial in which the jury comprises course attendees. The Citizens' Court Academy is presented in spring each year. For more information, contact the Commonwealth's Attorneys Office at (757) 727-6442.
