Blue Ridge Regional Jail Authority

The primary mission of the Authority is to support the criminal justice system by operating its facilities (Amherst County Adult Detention Center, Bedford Adult Detention Center, Campbell County Adult Detention Center, Halifax County Adult Detention Center, and Lynchburg Adult Detention Center) in a manner that produces a safe and secure environment for the public, staff, and inmates. The Authority, by primarily using direct supervision techniques, will provide for basic inmate needs and make available programs and services that promote self-responsibility and development and have the goal of returning to the community more productive citizens.
