The Eastern Shore Regional Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 5245 Hornes St Eastville, VA which is operated locally by the Northampton County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Northampton County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Eastville Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Eastern Shore Regional Jail is a 248-bed facility that houses minimum to maximum security male and female offenders. The Jail is maintained and operated to safely and securely house pre-trial, pre-sentenced and sentenced inmates primarily from both Northampton and Accomack Counties. In addition to housing local inmates, the jail may accept inmates from other jurisdictions.

In May 2007, the 85,500 square foot facility was opened to replace the 93-year-old, 30 bed Northampton County Jail. The state-of-the-art facility was built to meet the current and future correctional needs of the Eastern Shore. All areas of the main interior and exterior are monitored by security cameras and the control rooms are equipped to control everything in the housing units from doors, lights and cameras to telephones and televisions. The jail has its own full-service Kitchen, Laundry and Medical departments as well as Administrative Offices and an on-site Magistrate's Office.

Inmate Locator

Eastern Shore Regional Jail publishes the names of their inmates currently in their facility in Virginia. Your search should start with this locator first to see if your loved one is there.

The second box is the InmateAid Inmate Search. This database of inmates is user-generated content for the purpose of accessing and utilizing any or all of the InmateAid services. If you need our assistance creating your own inmate profile to keep in touch, email us at aid@inmateaid.com and we will assist you in locating your inmate.

As a last resort, you might have to pay for that information if we do not have it. The Arrest Record Search will cost you a small amount, but their data is the freshest available and for that reason they charge to access it.
