About the Facility

The Peumansend Creek Regional Jail (PCRJ) is a 336-bed, co-ed, medium and minimum security, direct supervision facility located in Bowling Green, Virginia. The jail is an extension facility for the cities of Alexandria and Richmond, and the counties of Arlington, Prince William, Loudoun, and Caroline. It also serves as a holding facility for the Virginia Department of Corrections. The Peumansend Creek Regional Jail does not incarcerate direct booking inmates but inmates who have completed the booking and intake processes at the participating jurisdictions and DOC. PCRJ does not confine juveniles under the age of 18 within the facility.

The mission of the facility is to provide detention services and those related operations deemed necessary for the protection of society, the health and custody of the inmates, and provide a safe working climate for the staff. Related services and programs will be provided to the inmate population whereby an inmate will have an opportunity to participate in these services and programs as determined in the assessments conducted by the classification staff at the time of intake.

The Peumansend Creek Regional Jail was established in 1999 and is operated by the Peumansend Creek Regional Jail Authority. Major Paul Perry is the facility Superintendent, Acting.
