Welcome! This is exactly the place you need to find out about Duffield. It is part of the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail Authority. Their website is down so your best bet would be to call there and ask your questions.

Duffield Regional Jail Facility
5251 Boone Trail Road
Duffield, VA 24244
(276) 431-8000

Since the inmate locator puts him there, he is either there waiting to be taken into DOC, or he is there under a work program. Hope you find the answers you need!

Mecklenberg is a classification prison so he will only be there temporarily. I haven't had any experience in the last year or so, but when my fiance' was there it wasn't too bad. Visitation was longer than anywhere else I have been at. However, you are not allowed to bring anything in and minimal jewelry. Everything has to be locked up before visitation. If you send any money with money order make sure they can read his name, and your name and address or they will not take it. I hope this helps a little. Welcome to PTO.

My fiance is at Southside Regional Jail in Emporia, Virginia. I am in Fredericksburg Virginia which is 120 miles away. I will travel any distance to see him even if I had to walk but we are trying to get doc to get him to a state facility so we can have contact visits. I know due to overcrowding that there is a good chance that he will stay there the whole 2 years and I am not accepting that. I have read somewhere about a form that can be filled out or something that can be done. Please help!

It is called a Writ of Mandamus and you can read about it in this thread.

Welcome to PTO!

Disclaimer:

Prison Talk Online cannot accept responsibility for rideshare or carpool arrangements made between members.

Members are advised that they make these arrangements at their own risk and in no way can PTO be held accountable for any problems that arise.
________________________________________________

We would like to encourage our members to consider the following precautions when entering into a carpool/rideshare agreement with another member.
  • Before agreeing to carpool, certain issues should be discussed and decisions made. Issues that should be settled immediately include members’ feelings about the radio, conversation, smoking habits and eating.
  • You should also find out whether the vehicle, personal possessions, or clothing of either passengers or driver will contain illegal substances or contraband. This is a very important issue and should be addressed with your fellow travellers. Prisons routinely search vehicles and you should be aware if there is a possibility of something being discovered and action taken. Most states do not allow firearms, cameras or alcohol on prison grounds - do your research, find out what is the local policy.
  • Agree in advance on reimbursement for driving expenses, meals, toll roads, parking fees and so on. Agree on a way of payment and a timescale for payment to happen.
  • If you don’t know your carpooling buddies, feel free to ask them about their driving record. Make sure they have a valid drivers licence.
  • Make your pick-up point a public location until you thoroughly trust the other individual.
  • Use common sense and trust your instincts; with a little preparation carpooling can be very rewarding and often leads to long lasting friendships.
Finally, have a safe journey and enjoy your visits.

Welcome to PTO and the VA forum, go to the Central Va forum and you may get a couple more responses there! There are some posts recently about Buckingham.

My man is still the Deerfield correction center as we speak. But soon will be putting in for a transfer to bland. Hope they will move him soon.

Love my man

Welcome to all of you!!! Hope right in and ask questions, but you will probably find better answers if you look in the specific forums. You are bound to find someone who has a loved one at the same facility that can answer your questions.
