Visitation Rules and Regulations
Effective December 1, 2014, the Hampton Roads Regional Jail will honor the new visitation schedule. We allow one (1) visit per week, for thirty (30) minutes each. All visits depend on staff availability and are subject to change; in which case the revised schedule is posted in the housing areas. A maximum of six (6) people, including children may visit at one time. Before a visit can be received the inmate/detainee must have completed a visitors list which may be changed monthly.
All visitors 16 and over must present valid picture identification with a current address. An adult family member or legal guardian must accompany visitors under 18 years of age. No minors (under the age of 18) may be left unattended in the lobby, visitation area or any other area of the facility. All visitors including those in wheelchairs, wearing wigs or wearing religious headgear, will be searched. All visitors must pass through a metal detector in order to maintain the safety and security of the facility, staff and visitors.
Attorneys are permitted to visit at any time during normal business hours, except during meals, counts, and lockdowns. To minimize delays caused by inmate counts, feeding and programs, the following schedule is suggested: Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00
The following are available transportation options for visitors, at the visitors’ expense: Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) Bus scheduling contact number is 757-222-6100, TDD 757-722-8427 and taxi-cab services.
