Virginia State Prisons and Facilities

The state of Virginia has only one type of long-term confinement facility for felons; they are called prisons. There are forty-one state prisons in Virginia spread across three regions: Eastern, Western, and Central. These facilities hold inmates who were convicted of state crimes. Each one has different levels of custody (ranging from minimum security to maximum), and some serve only women and others only men.

The Virginia Department of Corrections is the government agency in charge of all inmates, facilities, and Virginia state prison inmate records. Using the offender locator feature on their website, the general public can conduct a Virginia state prison inmate search at any time without any delay.
