[ARCHIVED] Sheriff's Office Announces Changes to Services at Roanoke County-Salem Jail

The Roanoke County Sheriff’s Office has announced that outreach programs have been canceled until April 26. This includes gun safety classes, weekend trash pickup, and self-defense classes. Workforce programs will continue with Parks and Recreation outside venues only and also continue at the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP).

In addition, the Sheriff’s Office informs the public of other changes to services from the Sheriff’s Office and at the Roanoke County / Salem Jail:

  • The lobby of the Roanoke County / Salem Jail will remain open to access the magistrate’s office.  
  • At this time video visitation from the jail lobby to inmates in the Roanoke County/Salem Jail is still available. We also encourage video visitation with inmates in the jail using the internet. Note that with video visitation, there is no personal contact between inmates and family.
  • Video visitation from the jail lobby to inmates at the Western Virginia Regional Jail has been stopped. 
  • Fingerprinting services for non-criminal matters has been stopped until April 26.  Persons needing fingerprints taken may contact the Virginia State Police to inquire if they are still providing this service.
