Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail’s
Visitor Guidelines


Onsite video visitation will be restricted to one adult visitor per visit. This temporary restriction is necessary to allow a modified restoration for inmate visitation while maintaining a safe visiting opportunity for family and friends as VPRJ continues to follow guidance from the Peninsula Health District during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

VPRJ appreciates your cooperation and understanding.

Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail's visiting area is a place for families, friends, and children. Attire should be appropriate to this setting. Visitors may wear casual dress that is reasonable and appropriate. Virginia Regional Peninsula Jail reserves the right to refuse admittance to any visitor that does not meet the jail's standards of dress or is considered to be inappropriately dressed. Any visitor whose dress is considered inappropriate will be referred to the Shift Supervisors who will make the final decision on admittance.
