Fam­ily and friends now have a new process to visit those incar­cer­ated at the Cor­rec­tions Cen­ter of North­west Ohio. Video vis­i­ta­tion was recently imple­mented, allow­ing the vis­i­tor to sched­ule vis­its on line as well as sched­ule an off-site visit via web cam­era.

Under the new pro­ce­dure, the vis­i­tor will now sched­ule the visit with the inmate. In the past, inmates sched­uled their own weekly visit with lim­ited hours.

Under the new process, all vis­its must be sched­uled 24 hours in advance and sched­ul­ing can be done on line by going to Vis­i­tors who don’t have access to a com­puter can go to their local library to sched­ule vis­its. If the vis­i­tor has a data plan on their cell phone they can access the web­site through their cell phone to sched­ule a visit.

Vis­i­ta­tion hours have been expanded with new hours 7:30 to 10 a.m.; Noon to 2:30 p.m. or 5 to 7:30 p.m. Mon­day thru Sun­day.

Jim Den­nis, CCNO Exec­u­tive Direc­tor, said the change to video vis­i­ta­tion was made “to fur­ther pre­vent the intro­duc­tion of con­tra­band.”

Also avail­able are vis­its off site for those who have the proper equip­ment. Such a visit will cost $25.00 plus $5.95 (taxes and fees.) A com­puter, web­cam and high speed inter­net are needed for an off-site visit.
