Extra InformationThis facility is for adult inmates.
Piedmont Regional Jail is a minimum to high-security facility located in Farmville, VA that serves the counties of Amelia, Buckingham, Cumberland, Lunenburg, Nottoway, and Prince Edward. Over the past two decades, Piedmont Regional Jail has consistently been recognized as one of the best managed facilities in Virginia. Fiscally, Piedmont Regional Jail has been recognized as the Virginia facility with the lowest cost-per-day for inmate incarceration.
The idea of a regional jail was first tossed around in the early 1980s. At the time, there were three small, antiquated jails in the six counties. The jails could not continue to meet recertification standards and each was holding 50-100% over its rated capacity. As a result, many inmates were being incarcerated outside of the six-county area.
Recognizing the overcrowded conditions, costs of building individual county jails, and physical conditions of existing jails, an ad hoc committee recommended to each of the county boards of supervisors that a regional jail be appointed, consisting of two members from each county, to proceed with plans for construction of a regional jail.
Piedmont Regional Jail provides weekly in-house commissary to all inmates. All monies must be posted prior to 6:00 a.m. on Monday morning in order to be available for commissary purchases. All in-house orders are deducted from the inmate’s account on Monday. Piedmont Regional Jail also provides out-house commissary through Keefe Commissary Network. Inmates can place these orders via phone, 9:00 a.m. Saturday through 9:00 p.m. Sunday. Commissary is delivered to inmates throughout the week by schedule based on their housing unit location.
