Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)

Pamunkey Regional Jail has zero tolerance for all forms of sexual abuse and sexual harassment against inmates. The Pamunkey Regional Jail engages accusations of sexual assault very seriously, and therefore mandates Jail employees, contractors, and volunteers maintain a professional relationship with all persons under the supervision of the Pamunkey Regional Jail.

If you were sexually abused or sexually harassed while in custody at Pamunkey Regional Jail or know someone who was sexually abused or sexually harassed, please call 804-365-6845. All criminal acts of sexual abuse or sexual harassment will be referred to the Hanover County Sheriff's Office for investigation.

Victim Notification Service (VINE)

The Virginia State Victim Notification Service (VINE) is a service through which victims of crime can use the telephone or Internet to search for information regarding their offender's custody status and register to receive telephone and email notification when the offender's custody status changes.

This service is brought to you by Virginia Department of Corrections and the Virginia Sheriff's Association via a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance for SAVIN that is managed by Virginia Center for Policing Innovation. The VINE toll-free number for Virginia VINE is 800-467-4943.
