The Gloucester County VA Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 7502 Justice Dr Gloucester, VA which is operated locally by the Gloucester 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. Gloucester County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Gloucester Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Jail houses an average of 85 inmates daily. Corrections deputies are responsible for the safety and security of the facility as well as all inmates and any individuals visiting the facility. Looking inside the daily operations of the jail, all inmate laundry services, food preparation, and painting/cleaning tasks are completed by inmates being supervised by staff.

Inmate Locator

Gloucester County VA 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.
