The primary mission of the RSW Regional Jail is to provide protection for the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia from those who have been remanded into custody. As the conditions of confinement are important to an effective jail system, we make a commitment to provide a humane environment for those confined. The RSW Regional Jail is operated by properly trained personnel. Our staff uses the principles of direct supervision to provide a secure, safe, efficient, progressive, and humane facility for both staff and inmates. RSW Regional Jail will provide inmates an opportunity for personal growth through the implementation of academic and life skills programs and substance abuse counseling and education.
In response to recent complaints from the public regarding other visitor’s behavior, RSW Regional Jail has updated the rules and regulations for inmate visitation to provide the safest and most comfortable experience possible for everyone. We ask that all visitors respect the rules and policies set forth. Thank you for your cooperation.
