     HANOVER, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice plans to close a juvenile detention center in Hanover and repurpose it.
Transfers of inmates and staff at the Hanover Correctional Center will begin early next year. A study will be conducted to determine what the facility should be repurposed as.
     The department also plans to repurpose the Oak Ridge Center in Bon Air into an evaluation center.
     It attributes the moves to budget cuts and a decrease in the number of juveniles who commit serious crimes.
     Greg Davy with the department says some workers at the Hanover center will be reassigned to other facilities. Others are expected to retire.
