The Delaware County OH Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 844 US Hwy 42 N Delaware, OH which is operated locally by the Delaware 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. Delaware County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Delaware Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

Initial Court Appearance

When an offender is arrested on new charges or a municipal court warrant, he/she will be seen in court the following business day via televised video arraignment (TVA). If you want to be present, you need to go to Municipal Court, 70 N. Union St., Delaware, 43015, 2nd floor. TVA schedule is as follows:

  • 9:30 a.m. Monday
  • 10:00 a.m. Tuesday – Friday.

If an inmate receives a warrant to discharge, the officers cannot release him/her until all the proper paperwork has been received by the jail. Generally, inmates are able to make a phone call to arrange for transportation at the time of their release. Please note, it takes some time for the court to clerk the decisions after the arraignment. The process can take up to four hours, based on the court’s caseload.
