Inside the Blue Ridge Regional Jail


Lynchburg, VA - The Blue Ridge Regional Jail is home to 1,200 inmates.

Administrator Tim Trent feels they have a pretty solid system in place.

The larger jails have three record clerks, the smaller: just one.

The clerks are responsible for making sure all paperwork is in order, but mistakes do happen.

"Nobody's perfect. But I think we have the right staff and the right positions and we work very hard to keep all inmates who are supposed to be incarcerated, incarcerated," Trent said.

Officials with the Blue Ridge Regional Jail also go through a national and state database to make sure there are no other charges on file or pending.
