Albemarle – Charlottesville Regional Jail strives to provide high-quality confinement services in a safe and humane environment. The facility makes every effort to minimize civil liability while observing and adhering to the constitutional rights of inmates through all services provided. The facility is professionally recognized locally and nationally as a fully accredited agency through the VA Department of Corrections (DOC) and the National Commission for Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) which assesses the quality of health services provided in correctional settings, while helping those facilities improve their health services provided. Further, the agency continues to work towards achieving full compliance with the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) the federal standards with regards to inmate sexual safety during incarceration.

The Accreditation Manager/Compliance Officer is the policy writer of the facility and is charged with monitoring and ensuring facility conditions of confinement and custody services meet federal, state and local regulatory standards including security, medical, and sanitation as it relates to the uniqueness of this facility. Accreditation is an oversight function that provides and verifies the standards that an organization are required to meet to be publicly recognized as conforming to professional mandates by performing internal audits as well as developing, reviewing, researching, revising and ensuring implementation of policies and procedures approved by the Superintendent or designee. 

Achieving and maintaining accreditation is an agency-wide effort and requires support from all departments within the facility.

In addition this department works with the Sexual Assault Resource Agency (SARA) and Offender Aid and Restoration (OAR) as well as the Albemarle County Police Department and the Albemarle Commonwealths Attorney’s Office and other agencies to provide assistance to incarcerated individuals who have been victims of sexual assault.
