About the Defiance County Sheriff's Inmates
In 1987 five local counties combined their resources and helped create the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio. This corrections center has a specific number of beds that are allocated for each county based upon their own size and need, and they pay for their portion of the operating expenses while receiving their appropriate portion of the funding. Defiance has 60 beds in this center, and it is shared with Fulton County, Henry County, Lucas County, Willimans County, and the US Marshals. Defiance County has 39,000 residents and they rely on the Sherriff’s Office for security at court, the safety of their county, and all investigations into crimes in the area. To do this they have a full service police station and the use of the Corrections Center for all of their arrests and for those who are serving a sentence in the county. Visitors to the corrections center are required to be on the approved list and can attend visitation hours. By sharing a center with other local counties more rehabilitation services and programs can be accessed. It provides an up to date facility will full staff and services, as well as programming to help maintain the health and safety of all inmates. In addition, visits are considered to be key to maintaining the mental health and helathy relationships of inmates so visitations are available both from home and in the lobby. Lobby visits are during the afternoon from 12-2:30 and again in the evenings from 5 to 7, while home visits include additional hours of 7:30 to 10 in the morning and extend until 9:30 in the evening.

Defiance County Sheriff's Inmates Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Defiance County?

After being arrested and taken into custody, and after being read their Miranda Rights, an offender will next be transported to the local police or department or the Sheriff’s Department in Defiance County for booking.

Booking is very involved and requires multiple steps in the process, however, keep in mind that most attorneys will advise that an offender remain silent and not offer any additional information about the crime they have been arrested for because anything they do say may be recorded and may very well be used against them in court.

What is the booking process like at the Defiance County Sheriff's Inmates?

Booking includes having their photo (mugshot) and fingerprints taken, as well as being asked a lot of questions about their personal history and state of mind. If it’s a serious felony, their DNA may also be taken. They will also be checked for warrants in Defiance County and other Ohio and USA jurisdictions.

If the offender was arrested for a DUI offense, and has refused a breathalyzer test, they may also be forced to have blood drawn by a doctor or nurse.

It is also very likely that the offender will undergo a humiliating full body search while in the nude. This includes bending over, spreading their cheeks in the direction of an officer, and coughing. They will also be walked through a metal detector or x-ray machine, like those used at an airport.

What kind of questions are asked during booking?

The arresting jurisdiction will ask about gang affiliations, tattoos, medical conditions, prescribed medication they are taking, recreational drugs they are on or addicted to, allergies, if they are suicidal, and other relevant information that will help with determining their cell assignment and special needs.

What happens to an offender’s personal property during booking?

During the arrest and booking process an offender will also have all their personal property confiscated and held for either their release from jail, or with the offender’s approval, released to a friend or family member.

Personal property includes the clothing they are wearing, money, wallets, purses, cell phones, jewelry, body rings, earrings, watches, and even glasses if they are deemed a security risk. If they are allowed to keep their shoes or sneakers, the laces are removed.

What happens after booking?

At this point the offender will be allowed to make a free phone call to a person of their choice to notify them of their arrest, and/or arrange a bond or bail for their release.

If the offender is being detained and housed while awaiting arraignment, the Defiance County Sheriff's Inmates will provide a jail garment and slip-on shoes, a blanket, sheets, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a towel.

Often, before they are dressed in the jail outfit and brought to their housing location, they will be forced to take a shower and undergo a disinfectant treatment for body and hair lice, scabies or other pests that may be residing on their person.

How long does the Defiance County Sheriff's Inmates Booking process take?

Booking can take anywhere from an hour to 24 hours or more. It all depends on the number of people that are awaiting processing, the number of staff on duty at the time, and the behavior of the offender.

If the offender is heavily intoxicated and/or violent, the Booking Officer may decide to stick the offender in a holding cell for several hours until they become more manageable.
