Arlington County JailFathers in the Arlington County jail will be granted an opportunity to spend time with their children during the Arlington County Sheriff’s Office annual Incarcerated Fathers Program on Monday (June 20).

“This event allows male inmates a once-a-year opportunity to actually come in contact with their children,” said Sheriff Beth Arthur, in a press release. “It is designed to strengthen and encourage positive relationships between fathers and their children, and to help lessen the impact and effects of separation.”

The event has been held around Father’s Day for the last four years. It is the only time during the year that male inmates are permitted physical contact with their children.

This year’s program will have an aquarium theme. The children will make themed crafts while enjoying dinner with their fathers, allowing them quality time to bond with their children.
