Rappahannock Regional Jail


Professionals/Clergy Visitation

Professional visitation is a visitor from a legal or medical entity, such as the courts, mental health, or law enforcement.


         Family members may not visit any inmate with whom they are related in a professional capacity.

         Attorneys must hand deliver legal documents directly to the inmate, or mail directly to the inmate.

         Clergy visits are on a first come, first serve basis. Clergy are asked to call in advance for the best visitation times.

         Professional attire is required.  All professional visitors must meet the same dress code as regular visitors, with the addition of no shorts.


         You must register with the lobby officer, ensuring that you provide them with your credentials:

o   Photo Identification

o   Current Virginia Bar Card

o   Organization Identification

         If you are going to meet with several inmates, you need to provide the lobby staff with a list so that they can coordinate your visit.

         You must secure your personal property in the coin-operated lockers, or you may elect to lock your personal property in your vehicle (keys, cigarettes, lighters, money, handbags, pagers, cell phones, etc.)

         You are not permitted to give your client anything other than legal paperwork unless approved by facility officials.
