CCNO’s pop­u­la­tion was slightly down. That news high­lighted Wednesday’s meet­ing of the Cor­rec­tions Com­mis­sion of North­west Ohio.

CCNO Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Jim Den­nis said Wednesday’s inmate pop­u­la­tion stood at 570 or 89 per­cent. The pop­u­la­tion aver­aged 583 or 91 per­cent in April and stood at 593 or 93 per­cent in May. He noted that the pop­u­la­tion is slow­ing this month but the year still indi­cates an increas­ing trend.

Mr. Den­nis said there is still room to place eli­gi­ble par­tic­i­pants on the elec­tronic mon­i­tor­ing pro­gram. He said the pro­gram is not up to capac­ity with the actual count as of Wednes­day at 107. He said area courts and pro­ba­tion offi­cers are being encour­aged to use the pro­gram to decrease the inmate pop­u­la­tion numbers.
