Now Hiring


The New River Valley Regional Jail is located in Dublin, Virginia and serves the counties of Bland, Carroll, Floyd, Giles, Grayson, Pulaski, Wythe and the City of Radford, VA.

Construction on the 279,000 square foot facility began in May of 1997 on a 28 acre site located in the Dublin Industrial Park in Dublin, VA. The newly built regional jail housed its first prisoners on April 27, 1999.

The building houses administrative offices, a magistrate’s office, public and professional visiting areas, kitchen, laundry, library, classrooms, medical unit, basketball court, two contained outdoor recreation yards, and a secure vehicle sallyport for loading and unloading prisoners.

As part of the NRVRJ’s Coronavirus prevention and response efforts, we have implemented prevention and screening policies for staff and prisoners in accordance with CDC and VDH guidelines.  Prisoners have always, and will continue to be provided with hospital grade disinfectant agents and other additional measures have been taken to enhance the sanitation of prisoner living areas.  Courts have continued to operate in a very limited capacity in order to reduce the movement of prisoners outside of the facility; however, prisoner movement to courts and other local jails will continue to some extent.  At this point, there are currently no known cases of COVID-19 involving staff or prisoners.  The NRVRJ has a planned response in the case of an infected prisoner or staff member.  All precautions are being taken to prevent the introduction of COVID-19 into the facility.
