The Cuyahoga Co Corrections is a detention center located at 1215 W 3rd St Cleveland, OH which is operated locally by the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Cuyahoga County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Cleveland Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Ohio here.

The CCCC is the second-largest jail in the state. It is a full-service Jail that provides superior care and management of over 26,000 inmates annually.
There are currently two locations, Downtown and Euclid. The Downtown Jail, which is the primary facility, is situated on one-half of a city block in downtown Cleveland at W 3rd St. and W Lakeside down the street from the Cleveland Browns Football Stadium and the southern shore of Lake Erie. It consists of two high rise buildings (Jail I and Jail II) that provide over one million square feet of space. The facility houses all levels of security statuses, from maximum security to weekenders. In 2015, the average stay of inmates was 30 days, approximately 10 days less than in 2014 with an average daily population of 2168.
The CCCC operates a full-service Kitchen, Medical Clinic and Pharmacy and provides Social Service programming, all managed by a staff of over 700 employees. CCCC’s partnership with MetroHealth Care has enhanced the quality and level of services provided to inmates. Service lines such as imaging, dental, and hygiene, were increased to complement MetroHealth’s already robust service portfolio and extend in-house capabilities.
The CCCC is managed by a dedicated Executive Staff comprised of the Regional Director of Corrections, two Associate Wardens, Facility Services Manager, Mental Health Services Manager, and Health Care Services Director. The daily operations are managed by Sergeants who oversee Corporals and a complement of around 550 Corrections Officers. Together, this team, in conjunction with a full-time medical staff which includes doctors, RN's, LPN's, MTA’s, Psychiatric and Dental services, are dedicated to maintaining a safe facility for our housed offenders.

Richmond Heights Jail Pilot
Additionally, the CCCC began receiving the City of Richmond Heights’ arrests at the Euclid facility. The initiative has been a great success, has the potential for substantial cost savings, and provides the city’s police officers more time to patrol the community. The pilot also demonstrates the effectiveness of court video conferencing, which allows arrestees to attend court without leaving the facility.

Enhancing Operations and Safety Through Technology
The CCCC continues to enhance operations and safety through technological advances.

In 2017, CCCC began transitioning the antiquated phone system to a state of the art communications system. The new technology provides increased accessibility for families while enhancing investigatory tools. Enhancements include:

  • In-Pod Kiosks: The new system includes kiosks in each pod that provides inmates access to phones, commissary, video visitation, medical requests and inmate grievances.
  • Phone Services: Understanding the importance of technology, community connections and convenience, the telephone upgrade allows a number of payment options. All calls are actively monitored either by live and/or biometric software.
  • Video Visitation: Family and friends can visit inmates from their home or cell phones. Family members still have the option to come to the jail, but using the video option will save money and time. All visits are monitored and secure. Video visitation has been rolled out at the Euclid facility and should be in full operation at all facilities by May of 2018.
  • Online Access to Commissary: The new system will include the capability to access and purchase commissary items for inmates online. These convenient options reduce travel time, expense and wait times at the jail.

CCCC is committed to providing evidence-based programming to assist Inmates with reentry to their home communities. Programs are provided by Corrections Center staff, contracted agencies as well as trained volunteers who donate their time to the Center. The Corrections Center has a Chaplaincy program that provides religious services and pastoral counseling services for inmates of all faiths and is coordinated by the Head Chaplain. The Center has a dedicated Social Work Department that assists with daily inmate concerns, linkage to community resources, case management, and coordination of services with provider agencies, Public Defenders, Courts, Judges and Probation.

Mental Health providers through FrontLine Service, Connections, Murtis Taylor, Children and Family Services, Recovery Resources, The Centers, Veterans Administration, Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and MetroHealth are housed in the Corrections Center and can provide eligibility assessments and, if accepted into their program, case management and ongoing services during and after incarceration. Inmates can request some in-house programs and others are placed into programming based upon assessment. Current programming consists of the following:

  • Project Learn GED preparation and testing
  • AA, NA and CA
  • Smarter Choices
  • Intensive outpatient substance abuse for expecting mothers
  • Survivor skills
  • Meditation instruction
  • Mentoring Us
  • Daddy Boot camp
  • Parenting and childbirth education for females
  • Dedicated Veterans Pod with in-house programming aimed at this population's unique needs
  • Comprehensive Reentry Services at Euclid Jail Annex
