Due to concerns over the coronavirus, all visits to the Hampshire County Jail and House of Correction will be suspended until further notice. This suspension does not apply to attorneys and religious advisers.
We are taking this step out of an abundance of caution and are working to ensure that our inmates have increased access to telephone services so that they may maintain their connection to loved ones. This is a fluid situation and will be assessed on a daily basis. Thank you.
Our primary mission at the Hampshire Sheriff’s Office Jail and House of Correction is providing care and custody for inmates. In doing so, we uphold the HJHC philosophy, which is to promote reintegration while protecting society and holding the offender at the lowest level of security consistent with public safety. We strive to operate a clean, safe, and humane facility, manageable in size with an appropriate range of services, which recognizes the individual needs of each offender.
