Richmond Has Programs That Target People Facing Drug Allegations
The most unique thing about the city of Richmond compared to some other jurisdictions is the programs that are available. They are lot more open to considering first offender treatments or Drug Court programs in the city versus some areas outside the City that do not have the funding for these programs. The other difference in Richmond is that you actually see a lot of larger scale cases which involve again the DEA and the FBI which make those cases more interesting and more unique.
