Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio (CCNO)
The Corrections commission of Northwest Ohio was formed in 1987 to oversee the construction and operation of the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio. The five member jurisdictions of the Corrections Commission include Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Lucas, and Williams Counties. The five member jurisdictions, along with one grant funded program and a contract with the US Marshals Service, proportionately share in the cost of operating the Corrections Center based upon the number of beds each is allocated. The bed allocation is reviewed annually, for the five member jurisdictions, based on each member's estimate of beds needed.
