The West Virginia Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority is responsible for the administration of ten regional jails throughout West Virginia. The Authority’s website offers detailed information on each modern regional jail, including facility contact information, daily inmate admissions by location, and an inmate search function. Email addresses for each Regional Jail Administrator can also be found on the website.
Inmates are allowed one visit each day, and visits are encouraged. Visitors must consent to a pat-search prior to the visit. If visitors do not consent to the pat-search, visitation will be denied. Visitors must present two forms of identification prior the visit. Contact between an inmate and a visitor is not allowed until the inmate has been incarcerated thirty days. Due to security concerns, some inmates may be denied visitation. Visitors must register prior to any visit. Facilities differ on the process for registration. Some facilities allow phone registration and some allow walk-in registration. Visitors should check with the individual facility on its registration process. Information on each facility’s registration process can be found at the website listed above.
