Americans with Disabilities Act
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Virginians with Disabilities Act, offenders with disabilities housed in a Virginia Department of Corrections (VADOC) facility or under state community supervision can request reasonable accommodations and provisions.
Our facilities and probation and parole offices have a common authority and set of operating procedures for ADA compliance. Various factors can affect an offender’s housing assignment based on their medical classification, needs, and the security measures required.
Every VADOC facility and probation and parole office has a designated ADA coordinator to assist with requests and grievances regarding disability concerns. Our trained ADA coordinator manages those requests and grievances throughout the system.
