Jail Information

Jail information is to help inform those family members and friends of inmates who are not familiar with the daily operation of the City Jail & Annex facilities rules and procedures.

It provides helpful topics to the public concerning procedures related to inmate interaction with friends and family members.


Career Opportunities

The Newport News Sheriff’s Office is committed to hiring only the best! We actively seek individuals who want a challenging career in a professional environment. Your career as a Sheriff’s Deputy begins with extensive training at the Hampton Roads Criminal Justice Training Academy located in Newport News, VA. During the 12-week Combined Academy, you will learn subjects ranging from criminal law, report writing, defensive tactics, court security, corrections, police vehicle operations and firearms training.

In addition, the Sheriff’s Office offers exceptional training, numerous opportunities for professional development, and an excellent salary and benefits package. Different challenges and opportunities await the deputies who work here, as well as more typical law enforcement activity. You must meet certain requirements and complete testing for job employment.


Community Programs

The Newport News Sheriff's Office offers many valuable services to our citizens as well as programs for crime prevention. Please follow the links below to discover more.

Offender Reentry

Across Virginia, jurisdictions release thousands of offenders from jails and prisons each year. The successful transition of offenders back into the community— without their re-offending, is critical to community safety.

In fact, research indicates that involving offenders in a comprehensive process that addresses substance abuse and mental health needs, education and employment training could help break the cycle of criminality and provide the opportunity for offenders to lead productive lives upon their return.

Public Information

The Sheriff's Office point-of-contact for all media requests is the Public Information Officer (PIO). The role of the PIO is to maintain positive and open communications with the media and ensure citizens' awareness of items relating to the Sheriff's Office, public safety, and both state and local laws.

In addition, The PIO is responsible for providing a link for events and information between the Sheriff’s Office and the people it serves.
