Office Hours: Monday - Friday 8 a.m.– 4 p.m.
Inmates are not permitted to possess cash while incarcerated. The Adult Detention Center maintains an individual account for each inmate. Funds may be used by inmates to purchase commissary items and to pay fines and medical charges. To deposit money into an inmate's account certified funds - such as money order cashiers or certified checks - are required. Money orders should be made payable to the inmate with the name and address of the person who purchased the funds. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. Certified funds may be mailed to the inmate or dropped off at the 24-hour drop box in the Central jail lobby. Information concerning an inmate's account is considered confidential and cannot be released to family members or the public.
Upon release of an inmate the account will be reviewed to ensure the ending balance is correct. The remaining balance will be issued in the form of a check. Unclaimed funds of $10 and above will be held for a period of 16 to 28 months and then are turned over to the Virginia State Treasury per state code.
Inmates may purchase items from the commissary. The commissary sells a variety of sundries which may be ordered once a week. The total amount of the order is deducted from the inmate's account.
