The Harrison Co Jail is a detention center located at 114 Court St Cadiz, OH which is operated locally by the Harrison 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. Harrison County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Cadiz 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.

This County Jail was originally a five-day holding facility with a maximum of eight inmates, due to the State of Ohio's minimum jail standards. Years later the jail was changed from a five-day holding facility to a twelve-day holding facility. Being only a short term holding facility this put a burden on the county. After the specified time the jail would have to transport the inmates to another county jail to be housed for the remainder of their sentence. The Harrison County Jail currently holds housing contracts with the Jefferson County Jail and the Carroll County Jails. The costs to house inmates in these facilities range from $45.00 to $55.00 a day per inmate.

If a male inmate is sentenced through our Common Pleas Court to a prison term, he is transferred to the Correctional Reception Center (CRC). Any female inmates sentenced to a prison term are transferred to the Ohio Reformatory for Women (ORW). All inmates' average stay at these institutions is 30-45 days for intake and classification purposes. Once this process is complete the inmate is transferred to their parent institution according to their classification. All inmates sentenced to a prison term through our county are brought back to court for a judicial release hearing. At this hearing, the court can release the inmate for purposes of their sentence being completed, and at this time the court would then specify the terms and conditions of their release. In some instances, the inmate is required to complete the program at the Eastern Ohio Corrections Center (EOCC). This program gives the inmate valuable tools to assist them in functioning in today's society.
