Fairfax County Adult Detention Center
About 1,300 adult men and women are held in the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center (ADC) at a time. Sheriff deputies monitor the inmates in four types of supervision: single cell, linear (corridor patrol), podular remote (cells arranged around common area) and direct (deputies work inside with inmates). ADC inmates are usually awaiting trial or are sentenced to no more than one year in jail.
Inmates can participate in a number of programs including basic reading, writing and math education, GED preparation, ESL courses, alcohol and drug services, mental health help, religious programs, job training and more.
Located next to the ADC, the Pre-Release Center holds those participating in the Alternative Incarceration Program. Inmates in this center are allowed to take advantage of work-release, community labor force and weekender jail programs. Contact the center at 703-246-4478.
Call Inmate Records or Booking Desk staff at 703-246-2100 for court dates and bond amount information.
For those who are a victim of a crime and want to know when a convicted criminal will be moved or released from jail, call the Fairfax County Police Department's Victim Services Section at 703-246-2141.
