Weekenders in Jail


The Court has the option of placing an offender in the Weekenders in Jail Program, which allows an inmate to retain his or her job and serve non-consecutive time for his or her sentence. Participants report to jail every Friday by 7 p.m. and go home at midnight on that Sunday.

Instructions for Weekenders

Report to the Adult Detention Center lobby (10520 Judicial Drive) this FRIDAY PRIOR TO 7:00 P.M., unless otherwise specified by the judge, to begin your sentence. Any tardiness will not be tolerated and will be dealt with accordingly. Do not report under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You may be required to take a blood, breath or urine test. You will be released that Sunday night at midnight and credited with three days of incarceration. You will continue this routine (report Fridays at 7:00 p.m. and be released at midnight Sunday) until you complete your sentence. You are to complete your sentence on consecutive weekends.

Items that you must bring:

  • Limited undergarments (two pair underwear, two t-shirts, two pair socks)
  • Suitable clothing (jeans or slacks, shirts and tennis shoes)
  • Proper sleepwear
  • Cash (no more than $20, no credit cards or phone cards)
  • Medication approved by Sheriff’s Office Medical Staff only
  • Jewelry (plain wedding bands only)

Any other items that you bring, not specifically on the above list, will be confiscated and possibly destroyed. Read the list carefully, and bring only those items listed above.

Personal hygiene items purchased from the outside are not permitted in the Alternative Incarceration Branch. These items will be provided by the Sheriff's Office.

You will not be allowed to wear shorts, halter tops, sleeveless shirts or shirts with obscene language/pictures. Gang paraphernalia or gang-style clothing, including bandanas or any other items deemed gang-related, are strictly prohibited.

If you have additional questions, call 703-246-4478, TTY 711.
