ABOUT VCE

We don't hire offenders to make products. We sell products in order to enable the training of offenders.
About Virginia Correctional Enterprises

 

VCE is a self-supporting agency established by the general assembly over 75 years ago to employ offenders in Virginia’s correctional system. We purchase our own equipment and supplies and employ a staff of over 160 Virginians. VCE's job-training programs have had a major impact in helping Virginia post the lowest re-incarceration rate in the country for the third consecutive year at 23.4%.


VCE job training programs are voluntary and offenders interview to be accepted. The job skills and experience gained from VCE programs enable offenders a greater chance of finding a job after release.


The VCE offender workforce, staff and entire organization are dedicated to producing quality items and services made in Virginia at competitive prices with industry-leading warranties, to both delight our customers and fulfill our worthy mission.


Examples of our products and services range from the ergonomic chairs in the offices of thousands of state and federal employees, to the linens at a major Virginia teaching hospital, which are washed, cleaned and delivered by VCE. You can see examples of our work at most major universities, lobbies of public buildings, state parks and state buildings. If you’re in a public school, you might see a large format textbook we printed for visually impaired students. We’re even in places you don’t see, restoring old blueprints into new, readable quality.


VCE products are constructed with pride and established industry certifications and standards, all while generating the hard and soft skills for our offender staff to renter into society and gain meaningful employment.
