Adult Detention Center

The Loudoun County Adult Detention Center, Community Custody Program, and the Loudoun County Magistrate’s Office, are all in the same complex. The center uses both direct and indirect methods of inmate supervision.

The center houses maximum, medium, and minimum security-level inmates. Some inmates may be housed at the facility for up to three years before being transferred to the State Department of Corrections.

Often inmates will receive a stay of delivery to the Department of Corrections because of appeals. Local inmates receiving 12 months or less will serve their sentence at the Loudoun Adult Detention Center. All inmates are charged a dollar-a-day fee, per state code 53.1-131.3, which helps offset the costs of their incarceration.

Location:  42035 Loudoun Center Place, Leesburg, VA.

Health and Well-Being Protocols

The Loudoun County Adult Detention Center ensures the health and well-being of the inmates, staff, and visitors.

  • The Loudoun County Medical contractor observes and assesses all incoming inmates entering the facility.
  •  Inmates who enter the facility will spend the standard 48-72 hours in intake to await their TB/medical clearance before being classified into General Population. If, after 48-72 hours, they exhibit signs of sickness, they will be transferred to a medical observation unit for 10 days of further observation before joining the general population. The inmates are monitored and checked for any symptoms every day by deputies and medical personnel. If inmates exhibit any flu-like symptoms, they will be quarantined in a negative airflow cell. Those inside the medical unit will have the same privileges as the general population, including the same access to tablets, telephones, television, and non-contact visitation.
  •  All inmates have access to the inmate tablets to communicate with loved ones and friends. In addition, all inmates are given a free 5-minute phone call weekly; this begins Monday of each week.
  • All inmates have access to mental health counseling and psychiatric visits.
  • All medical appointments deemed necessary by the contracted medical doctor will be conducted. 
  • Inmates have the privilege to meet their attorneys in the non-contact visitation booths and via a free non-recorded video visitation on an inmate tablet.
  1. Work Release Center
  2. Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)

In addition to the general population inmates, the center also houses the inmates assigned to the Work Release / Workforce program. The Work Release Center houses non-violent, minimum-security inmates that are soon to be released back into the community. The Work Release Center has the capability of housing up to 96 inmates.

The inmates at the facility pay $12 per day for staying at the facility and those in the work release program are released each day to go to and from their jobs with stringent rules and regulations. The money they make helps pay their fines, and court costs, restitution to victims, and support their families. This also eases the burden of financial support to the taxpayer.

Inmate Work Force

Also housed at the Work Release Center is the Sheriff’s Inmate Work Force. This group of inmates is also non-violent minimum custody level inmates. They work in the community under the direct supervision of an armed deputy and perform landscaping, parks, and waterways, minor construction, painting, and other numerous tasks. They work on State, County, and Town property as well as on the property of charitable organizations. The inmates are credited between $5-$7.25 per hour which goes directly to paying fines and court costs. Each year this group saves the county and municipalities within the county, thousands of dollars in the work they perform.

The equipment used by the Sheriff’s Inmate Work Force such as mowers, weed eaters, etc. is purchased from the inmate canteen fund. This fund receives no tax money and is supported by the inmates’ purchases from the commissary vendor. This group also performs various seasonal work such as grass cutting, landscaping, and snow removal throughout the county which would otherwise be a contracted cost to the county.

In accordance with the Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center (LCADC) will not discriminate against inmates with disabilities.  To discuss any specific concerns or accommodations, please contact the Adult Detention Center’s ADA Liaison via email.
