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 https://securustech.net/118. 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.
