The Petersburg Jail is a city jail located at 40 Henry St in Petersburg, VA. It serves as the holding facility for the Petersburg Police Department or agencies within the judicial district of Petersburg City County. City jails are locally operated short-term facilities that hold inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both, and inmates sentenced to a term of less than one year, typically misdemeanants or repeat nuisance criminals. Most inmates not condemned to penalty or punishment could qualify for bail. If you would like information regarding a release, please call 804-733-2376.

Inmates scheduled for longer-term sentences will get transferred to a Federal or State Prisons run by either the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) or Virginia Department of Corrections. There is no time frame given for the transfer, the factors include bed space and logistic timing for the sheriff or marshals to transport the inmate securely.

Family and Friends of inmates are allowed to:

Receive phone calls from the inmates,

• Provide them with commissary money

Receive and send them mail

• Schedule a time to visit.
