If you have ever wanted to see the inside of a jail cell but didn't want to have to commit a crime to do it, then Sunday was your chance.
The Albemarle Charlottesville regional jail held their third annual open house. The public was invited to see how the jail is run and tour the facility.
“The purpose of the open house is to allow the citizens to come in and see the jail and show some of the programs we are doing here for the inmates to reintegrate them back into the community,” said Regional Jail Superintendent Col. Ronald Matthews.
There was also an inmate art work contest and visitors today got to be the judges.
