Inmate Vocational Programs

  • Trusty Program – This is a highly structured program that allows inmates to work in and around the facility to perform such tasks as food service, cleaning, and minor repair work.
  • Inmate Work Force Program – This program is overseen by the Sheriff’s Office and managed by Fauquier County General Services, Environmental Services and W.S.A., respectively.  Fauquier County employees, bonded by the Fauquier Circuit Court, are utilized to supervise inmate workers to provide a wide range of services from cleaning county buildings to landscaping and snow removal on State, County or Town properties. Non-violent offenders are permitted to participate in this program, provided they meet all program criteria. These guidelines insure the safety and security of the citizens of Fauquier County.
  • Work Release Program – The Work Release Program allows non-violent offenders, who are sentenced within program guidelines, to maintain employment while serving their sentence.  All inmates are thoroughly screened prior to placement on the program and on-site job checks, as well as alcohol and drug screens are performed routinely. Inmates are also monitored by G.P.S. technology and employers are required to monitor participants while at work.
  • Electronic Incarceration Program – Home incarceration is an alternative, cost-effective method of incarceration, by electronic G.P.S. monitoring, that allows inmates to maintain employment and/or continue to reside at their place of residence, while serving their sentence.  Eligibility requirements include, but are not limited to:
  • Good conduct during traditional incarceration
  • 6 months or less to serve
  • Having a permanent local address
  • Participants must pay fees for leasing of the required equipment and are subject to random home visits and random drug/alcohol screening.
  • In instances where adequate cellular service is not available at the location of the residence, a landline telephone may be required for participation.

 

(Persons with a prior history of escape, sex crimes, excessive drug abuse/drug distribution or other violent crimes do not qualify for vocational programs.)

INMATE PRIVILEDGES

Visitation

Inmates are allowed one in-person visit per week, on either Saturday or Sunday.

Female Inmate visiting hours are: 12:00 Noon – 1:00PM

Male Inmate visiting hours are: 1:00PM – 3:30PM

 

Visitors may be friends or relatives and each inmate is required to complete a visitor registration form that lists no more than three authorized visitors. The list may be changed once every thirty days.

Visitors are required to have an assigned time for visitation. All visitors must call the ADC booking desk at 540-422-8700, the day of the requested visitation, between the hours of 8:00AM and 11:00AM for their appointment time. Visits last approximately 20-25 minutes.

No one under the age of 18 may visit unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Visitors are required to provide identification and are subject to search.

Inmates in general population also have access to the “Homewav” video visitation system from 6:00AM until 11:00PM, seven days per week.  Visits of this nature may be scheduled with inmates, using the Homewav kiosk located at the visitation entrance of the building, or on any personal electronic device with internet access. 

As with on-site visits, all registered visitors must be at least 18 years of age and a valid I.D. is required when setting up an account or signing into the system.

For more information on establishing a Homewav account, or to schedule Homewav visits, please log on to www.homewav.com.

Telephone Access

All newly incarcerated inmates receive two free telephone calls at their time of committal.

Once housed in general population, inmates have access to a telephone from 6:00AM – 11:00PM daily.  They are allowed to make out-going calls only, which are either placed collect or with funds from their inmate commissary account.  They may not receive incoming calls or messages unless it is a life/death emergency, which will be verified by a deputy or other staff member prior to issuing the message to the inmate. 

If you wish to establish an account for an inmate on your personal landline or cellular phone, you may do so by calling 1-800-PAYTELL or online at www.paytel.com.

Please be aware that there are fees associated with both Homewav and the PAYTEL systems, even if a call is local. 

Canteen/Commissary

Due to security concerns, no clothing, food or other outside items will be accepted for inmates.

Inmates are able to purchase a variety of items from our commissary, including hygiene products, clothing, snack foods, stationary items, etc.  Inmates are permitted to establish a financial account for this purpose as well as purchasing phone time with the PAYTEL system.

Funds may be applied to an inmate's account in the form of CASH or credit/debit card at the commissary KIOSK, located at the front entrance of the ADC, or on-line at www.jailatm.com.  

We no longer accept money orders for inmate accounts, with the exception of an out-of-state money order, received in the mail, or extenuating circumstances on a case-by-case basis.

Reading Materials

Inmates are allowed access to current periodicals and the jail library once per week. They may also receive books, magazines and newspapers that are shipped directly from the publisher to the ADC.

U.S. Mail

Inmates may send and receive an unlimited amount of mail.  Stamps may be purchased through the inmate commissary and legal mail is mailed free of charge.

For safety and security reasons, all incoming mail is screened for contraband, then photo-copied before being distributed to the inmate.  Original letters, cards and photographs are not retained.

Attempting to mail drugs or other unauthorized material to an inmate is a criminal offense.
