We offer good pay, benefits including health care, educational opportunities, support to maintain and improve physical fitness, and much more. Come find out why NSO has been repeatedly voted one of the best places to work in Hampton Roads.
Provide a Fresh Premium Meal

We're proud to offer this option for friends and family to order their loved ones fresh, hot meals, delivered daily, that they'll truly enjoy. Each inmate is allowed two such meals per day. You can easily choose your selection on the 811 Market Place webpage. You can also order snacks and personal items for your inmate on our Canteen Services page.
Prevent Fraud and Scam Attempts

Fraud Watch is a complete toolbox that consumers can use to track down information that they can use to identify efforts to defraud them, as well as how to help protect themselves and their loved ones from such attempts. Here you'll find links to great resources, videos to help inform you and a way to report fraud attempts to NSO.

“You have a person in jail, and they’re probably at their lowest point.
We want to give them hope; to give them options.”

We Are Passionate About Rehabilitation

We strive to provide every resource possible to help our inmates reenter the community with a clear path towards leading a law-abiding and productive lifestyle.

We especially feel our efforts are worthwhile when a previously incarcerated individual is never again placed in our custody.
