The Corrections Commission of Northwest Ohio was formed in 1987 to oversee the construction and operation of the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, most commonly known as CCNO. The five member jurisdictions of the commission include Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Lucas, and Williams counties. The members, along with a contract with the US Marshals Service, proportionately share in the cost of operating CCNO based on the number of beds each is allocated. In the past, CCNO has also worked with the state of Ohio to house offenders under grant programs. Bed selections for the members are reviewed annually, and selections are based on needs for each member. Currently beds are reserved as the following:

Jurisdiction Number of Beds
Defiance County 60
Fulton County 52
Henry County 37
Lucas County 200
Williams County 55
US Marshals 220


CCNO is accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA).  To retain ACA accreditation, CCNO undergoes an audit on all ACA standards every three years.  Yearly reports are also forwarded to the ACA to show continued compliance.  CCNO also receives accreditation for PREA standards, and similarly to ACA, we undergo an audit every three years to ensure that we are compliant.

CCNO is certified by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections Bureau of Adult Detention on all State of Ohio Jail Standards.  This inspection period is every five years.  The Bureau of Adult Detention audits CCNO every year on a portion of the minimum jail standards to monitor compliance.  To view the Ohio Jail Standards please click on the link provided.

CCNO is also PREA accredited. PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) is overseen by the Department of Justice and is discussed more in depth in the 'Report Sexual Abuse' section on the website.
