Powhatan Reception Center
Powhatan Reception Center opened in 2008 and is located in State Farm Virginia. It houses approximately 450 inmates of mixed custody levels. As a reception and classification center, Powhatan Reception Center is responsible for performing the intake of inmates from local jails in the region. During intake fingerprints, photos, drug screening and a full criminal history of the offender is taken. Additionally, inmates are assessed mentally and physically. Based on all the information collected during intake the inmate will be given a custody classification and assigned to a more permanent facility conducive to their rehabilitation and security needs. Due to the small amount of time an offender is usually at Powhatan Reception Center, programs are limited.
