Annual events allow parents to spend time with their children during the winter holidays
The Arlington County Detention Facility (ACDF) will host two special events to allow incarcerated mothers and fathers to visit with their children during the winter holidays.
Incarcerated parents who meet certain requirements will be given the opportunity to have a contact visit with their minor children during the events. The theme of this year’s events is “Winter Holiday Party.” The children will make themed crafts while enjoying dinner with their parents.
The Sheriff’s Office hosts similar events in the summer months as well. The events aim to foster positive relationships between parents and children and lessen the effects of separation.
