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.
RSW Regional Jail is a public service organization that has an integral place in the public safety community and is therefore obligated to keep the public informed of its costs and the effect of policies and legislation governing and impacting the operation of this facility.
RSW Regional Jail will uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia and will comply with the Jail Standards of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
