The Richmond City Sheriff’s Office strives to maintain a secure and safe jail facility and courtroom environment by deploying highly trained professionals to perform these sworn duties. With unwavering integrity and care, we preserve the human dignity of those in our system; and resolve to uphold the laws of our city and state when carrying out our public safety role.
Agency Overview-The Richmond City Sheriffs Office employs almost 500 sworn and civilian employees who work to secure and promote the safety of our jail, courthouses and community. There are three divisions and seventeen departments involved in providing a range of employee, resident, and community services. The Office works with state and city administrators to craft yearly budget requirements, and partners with the Richmond Police Department (RPD) for correctional and technology training courses and use of facilities and classrooms. Extensive work is done in the community through agreements with the City, which allows supervised inmates to help keep parks, cemeteries and neighborhoods clean.
