CCNO board meets to discuss programs ensuring that most of its beds are being utilized

An ad-hoc committee of the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio board met Wednesday to discuss programs ensuring that most of its beds are being utilized. The issue arose last year when the city of Toledo — which had rented 228 of CCNO’s 674 beds — withdrew from the partnership amidst a dispute with Lucas County. Since then, CCNO has rented bed space to the state for diversion and post-release control programs while Lucas County picked up another 100 beds. Some 658 of CCNO’s beds are now reserved for those programs or member counties. During Wednesday’s meeting, CCNO director Jim Dennis also noted the possibility of renting at least 10 beds to the U.S. marshals for federal inmates held in pretrial detention. According to Dennis, CCNO will be reimbursed at a rate of $90 per day.
