jail-pic99xThe new RSW Regional Jail is located on Winchester Road, Route 340/522 approximately 3 miles north of Interstate 66 in Warren County, Virginia. The jail, opened in July 2014, serves the counties of Warren, Rappahannock, and Shenandoah, and will initially have capacity for 375 inmates.

The jail contains cells and dormitories to house inmates. It also has support space which includes food service, laundry, intake and release, medical services, recreation and education, central storage, visitation, magistrate, administration, and staff services. An initial staffing plan for the 375 bed jail has approximately 149 employees in the building each day covering shifts for the 24 hour facility.


Utilizing a modern design approach and incorporating similar materials used on surrounding structures, care was taken to break up the mass of the front façade of the building in order to provide a pleasing architectural design that complements the Highway Overlay District zoning by providing a commercial building appearance. The building has one and two level areas, with a total gross square footage of approximately 175,000 square feet.

The jail pursues LEED certification with the US Green Building Council, and is designed to implement high performance and sustainable features including water saving systems.
