In addition to inmate housing, the site has kitchen, medical, and laundry areas, as well as program and work release space for inmates. The facility also houses the BRRJA’s Maintenance and Training Departments.

It is located on approximately 23.5 acres of land in Amherst County off the 210 connector near the Amherst by-pass. The mailing address is P.O. Box 1150, Madison Heights, VA 24572. The facility is operated under the direction of Major D. W. (Bill) Parker and employs 127 staff members.
