The Essex County VA Jail is a medium-security detention center. It is  located at 304 St Tappahannock, VA. This county jail is under the control of the Essex County Sheriff’s Office. 

This jail keeps inmates who are awaiting trial or sentencing. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years.

Essex County accepts inmates from surrounding towns and counties who don’t have their own long term detention facilities. 

New detainees are brought to the jail daily. Some are released after putting up bail. Some are also released to a pretrial services caseload. They are placed under supervision by a probation agency.

Inmates who are not released will stay back in the jail till they are tried and sentenced. 

They are entitled to three meals and a bed everyday. They also have access to medical facilities if and when they need it.

Some of them may work for the jail as trustees. They could work in the kitchen or laundry or even as orderlies. They are paid in small amounts of money and sometimes have time off of their jail term.
