To encourage and strengthen family ties and communication, the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail promotes and supports inmates to maintain ties with their families and friends through regular visits. In fact, we strongly feel that visitation is an important part of each inmate's rehabilitation. At the same time, ACRJ provides for the safety and security of each facility, staff, inmates and most importantly, the safety of other visitors, the public, and, you.



The Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail currently utilizes Tablets and Video Visitation.  This provides Inmates, their families, friends, and the public an opportunity to “see” one another. The tablets allow Inmates to video visit with family/friends, provides the ability to send and receive email, make phone calls, stream movies, music, podcasts, read books, take classes/courses, receive videos/pictures, and send and receive request forms. 

Attorneys and other professional service providers shall NOT use the inmate family and friends tablet system.  Please see the “Inmate Communication” page for further information regarding attorney video visitation.
