CURRENT LEVEL: HIGH


Effective Immediately
01/11/2021

In an attempt to stay ahead of the record COVID cases in the community and state (to keep our kids and staff safe), we have made the decision to reinstate previous facility visitor restrictions – closed to the public, essential personnel only. Last week, the Commonwealth reported its highest level of hospitalizations ever due to COVID-19.

Non-Professional Visitors: Video visitation only.

Professional Visitors:

  1. Video visitation preferred (with notice);
  2. Non-contact visitation available (with notice); and
  3. Lawyers can meet in-person with mask and 6 feet distance.

For video visitation, after calling to confirm an available time, please e-mail court@nrvjdh.org with the link, date and time requested.

We have a strict prescreen, face covering and social distancing policy – regardless of vaccination status.


Our Mission

We will provide secure custody for and care of juveniles in a safe healthy environment, while protecting the community. As an integral part of the rehabilitation process, supervision, guidance, and counseling are used to control and prevent delinquency by promoting personal responsibility, social accountability, and emotional growth.

Make sure to check back often as we will update this site frequently. We feel that public awareness of our operation is important as we strive to be a good neighbor.

We are a 24 bed secure detention facility operated under the authority granted by the New River Valley Juvenile Detention Commission consisting of the owner jurisdictions of the city of Radford and the counties of Giles, Montgomery and Pulaski. The owner jurisdictions pool financial resources to provide for the delivery of juvenile detention services to meet the philosophy and mission of the Commission.
