CCNO Discusses Proposed Changes

The Cor­rec­tions Com­mis­sion of North­west Ohio met yes­ter­day and heard about pro­posed changes in how beds are allo­cated at the regional jail. Toledo is now charg­ing crim­i­nals under the Ohio Revised Code rather than city ordi­nance and that will have an as-yet not under­stood impact on their need for beds at the jail. Toledo wanted to go back to their orig­i­nal allot­ment of 228 beds instead of the cur­rent 240, which would increase the bed count for Lucas, Ful­ton and Henry Coun­ties. Dis­cussed was what hap­pens if Lucas County has to shut the county jail due to over­crowd­ing and how the over­flow would come to the CCNO.
