Thanks to Chris for this guest post and picture.

We have a new ADC for Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park. It will begin to house inmates next month. The new ADC is long overdue, and finally complete.

One of the best things about having the new facility is that inmates who are currently “farmed out” out to other jurisdictions will be returning to the area. This will be a big savings to us the tax payers. We’ve been spending a fair amount of money on our inmates to be housed in other facilities. We aren’t able to farm out any person with an ICE detainer.

The new facility was also featured during yesterday’s Board of Supervisors meeting. It showed the project from start to finish. The presentation will re-air on Channel 23 or Channel 37 the next three nights at 7:30, and then on Saturday and Sunday at 10am.

One of the neatest features is the “video visitation.” PWC is the second jurisdiction in the Commonwealth to use this technology, Virginia Beach was the first. One of the big benefits of this new technology is there’s less possibility of contraband getting in the hands of the inmates.

  1. Hey, who built it?


  2. Lafayette

    It was built by Tompkins Builders Inc.
    Why don’t you give them call and ask them yourself.

  3. Does anyone have any gold jewelry, bullion, or coins they would like to sell?

    I’m looking to buy.

    If you do, please send me an email at and we can make arrangements for payment and delivery.

    Mackie, what? Are these the end times?

  5. Can we put Stewart, Stirrup, Duecaster and GL in one cell with only one pillow? And take pictures now…and then again in 30 days after they’ve been locked up with minorities? Please???????

    The new ADC will have inmates in November. This extra space will save the county a great deal of money since they won’t have to farm their ‘residents’ out. PWC, Manassas, and Manassas Park all share this facility.

    Moon-howler — Manassas Park uses the jail on a prisoner per diem basis but
    doesn’t share ownership of the facility. It is a regional facility owned
    by Prince William County and the City of Manassas.

    The added beds will save money through decreased” farming”, but the ADC will
    still have space needs in the near future if the prisoner population
    continues to rise at the current rate.

    Poor Richard.
    I have some questions for you after reading your post regarding Manassas Park. Since MP pays per diem for their prisoners, do they always stay here at our ADC or can they be farmed out? Could they “shop” around to house their prisoners elsewhere?Does the City of Manassas Park have anyone that sits on the board for the ADC?

    How long do you think before we’ll be “farming” out prisoners again?

    I know that you will give a factual answer as always.

    Thank you in advance,

    Thanks for the clarification, Poor Richard. I thought MP had ownership. Looks like I thought wrong.

    The Detention Center is operated by PWC and Manassas City through the Jail Board of Directors, The Prince William – Manassas Regional Jail Board was formed in 1978. It is the operating authority for the Regional Adult Detention Center. The Board is composed of 10 members from the two participating jurisdictions. The Sheriff sits on the Board by statutory authority; seven additional members are appointed by the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, and two by the Manassas City Council.

    Prince William County, in anticipation of potential overcrowding, also participates independently in the Peumansend Creek Regional Jail in Bowling Green, Virginia. Prince William County has 75 spaces allocated for its inmates who may be housed at Peumansend Creek. So the County has done some preparation in case of overcrowding.

    Will we have any room at all to take in prisoners from other areas? I understand this is a good money maker. If anyone knows the score here, please fill us in.
