The Arlington County Detention Facility (ACDF) will host 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 dinner with their children and make themed crafts. The theme of this year’s events is based on the recently released holiday movie “The Grinch.”
- Incarcerated Fathers Event (Fathers only)
Monday, Dec. 10
- Incarcerated Parents Event (Mothers and fathers)
Tuesday, Dec. 11
The Sheriff’s Office hosts similar events in the summer months. The events aim to foster positive relationships between parents and children and lessen the effects of separation.
Members of the media are invited to attend and cover these events. They will take place at the Arlington County Detention Facility at 1435 N. Courthouse Rd. in Arlington. Please contact Major Susie Doyel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-228-4461 for more information or to RSVP.
