Cuyahoga County Jail

Friends/family – all visits held at the Cuyahoga County Corrections Center (CCCC) will be suspended until further notice. Starting March 18, 2020, remote video visitation will be available for all inmates. A promotional event (for the next 30 days) will allow each inmate to have one remote visit per week at no cost. Information will be shared with inmates within the next week explaining how to receive the free visit.
Attorney/Professional Visits required by the Court (aka essential visits) – these visits will continue as current practice. However, it is highly recommended attorneys and professional visitors consider the options of either on-site video visitation or remote visitation (see below). All other non-essential visits will be conducted as on-site video visitation.
On-site video visitation for attorneys and professional visitors will be available on a walk up basis at no charge to the visitor. While it is encouraged to schedule a visit (so the inmate is aware of the visit), it is not required. A Scheduled on-site video visit does require the visitor to establish a user account (more information available before Friday, March 20, 2020). On-site video visits are 20 minutes in duration.
Remote video visits will be available starting March 18, 2020 with each visit being 25 minutes in duration. A User Account for the visitor will be required in order to have a remote video visit. The Visitor may use a smart phone, tablet or computer for remote visits (assuming the phone/tablet/computer meets all technology requirements). With the exception of the promotional one free visit per week, all remote video visits have a fee of $5 for 25 minutes (additional fee applies for payment by credit card).
Family Justice Center/Witness Victim Service Center

Starting on March 18, 2020, the Family Justice Center located at 75 Erieview Plaza, Cleveland, OH 44114 will be closed for walk in traffic. Victims requiring assistance may call 216-443-7345 and leave a message. This mailbox will be checked routinely during the day and an advocate will reach out to you shortly thereafter.
