Inmate Visitation


All persons /vehicles entering the jail facilities /properties are subject to warrant checks and are subject to being searched.

ACRJ grounds and facility(s) are subject to photo and video surveillance at all times. 

To encourage and strengthen family ties and communication, the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail promotes and supports inmates to maintain ties with their families and friends through regular visits. In fact, we strongly feel that visitation is an important part of each inmate's rehabilitation. At the same time, the ACRJ provides for the safety and security of each facility, staff, inmates and most importantly, the safety of other visitors, the public, and you.

Therefore, this page was developed to familiarize you with the visitation rules and regulations that must be followed both prior to and during each visit. Visitation is a privilege for inmates and should not be considered a right. Therefore, please read the following information carefully; we trust that this information will be useful to you.
