The RCCC is a low/medium-security detention center located at 3220 Colerain Ave Cincinnati, OH which is operated locally by the Hamilton Regional Authority and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates have been here for less than five years. RCCC accepts inmates from the Hamilton County Sheriff's arrests and surrounding towns, Cincinnati 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.
