Leak in Incoming Water Pipe

I've got a massive leak on the water line coming into my house. Right after the shutoff valve, the pipe runs through another valve. I don't see the purpose of this second valve. If I turn the water on, the water pressure inside the house is much higher.

Anyone know what this is and how I can fix it?

Is this second valve a gate valve, or a Pressure Relief Valve? In either case, if it's leaking, repair or replace it.
