About the Mahoning County Jail

As a large detention facility, the Mahoning County Jail is comprised of towers aligned back to back. The separation offers an easy distancing of the cell blocks for minimal security, medium security, and maximum security needs. Men and women are both held in this detention center but are kept in different cell blocks and have meals separately as well.

The Mahoning County Jail has a capacity of 685 inmates and a full staff to monitor the health and safety of each. It opened in 1997 and has remained in the same location since, with its larger capacity, and the average bookings per year are over 3100. The address is 110 Fifth Avenue
Youngstown, OH 44503, and you can reach the jail by phone 24 hours a day by calling 330-480-4920.

To maintain contact with their friends and family, as well as lawyers, phone calls are permitted for inmates during the appropriate hours. All calls must be made to preapproved people who have already been cleared, and visitors must be listed on the visitation list.

You can also mail an inmate or send them a digital message and photographs which they can receive on tablets in the jail. All the policies on communication are detailed in the sections below.

In order for a visit to the jail the visitor must be pre-registered and schedule a visit prior to the date. Access to the visitation website where you register and the full schedule can be found below in the Visitation Section, or can be found on the Visitation Page. Visiting hours are from 7:30 am until 9 pm and on weekends from 7:30 am until 2:30 pm. Visitors will also be provided with a list of clothing that is not acceptable for visits, and any visit can be cancelled if inappropriate attire is worn.

Inmates are given a handbook with a complete list of all the rules and policies, and since you have access there should be no confusion about what is expected of you when communicating with your inmate.

Recent Bookings & Arrests

How do I find out if someone has been arrested and booked into the Mahoning County Jail?

To find out if someone you know has been recently arrested and booked into the Mahoning County Jail, call the jail’s booking line at 330-480-4920.

There may be an automated method of looking them up by their name over the phone, or you may be directed to speak to someone at the jail. Sometimes the jail staff may ask you the offender’s date of birth to ensure privacy of the offender’s status.

Keep in mind that after an arrest, the information on an offender may not be publicly available for several hours.

If you don’t want to check up on an offender by calling the jail, you can also try looking up people recently booked online.

Mahoning County Jail Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Mahoning 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 Mahoning 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 Mahoning County Jail?

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 Mahoning 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 Mahoning County Jail 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 Mahoning County Jail 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.

Inmate Bail and Bonding

The Mahoning County Sheriff recommends that you use a bail bond agent licensed to do business in Mahoning County.

  • You can pay a cash bond yourself, or use your home in Mahoning County, or in some cases the state of Ohio, but the benefit of using a bail bond agent is that they take responsibility for making sure the inmate shows up for court in Mahoning County, and if they don't, then they take the financial responsibility.
  • The typical fee for a bond will be between 10-20% of the bail amount; usually 15%.  So if an offender has a bail of $10,000.00, their bond will be $1500.00.

Call 330-480-4920 to find out the exact bond (plus other fees) amount, or look it up online by looking up the information on the Mahoning County inmate locator.

Mahoning County Bail Bond Information

Because Mahoning County and Ohio can change their bail bond procedures, it is always best to call either the Mahoning County Jail at 330-480-4920, or the court in the jurisdiction (i.e. Municipal Court, District Court, etc.) where the offender was charged, and do this right after an arrestee has been booked. 

Ask the staff at the Mahoning County Jail or the Mahoning County Court Clerk these specific questions:

  1. Is the defendant eligible for bail or a bond?
  2. How much will the bail or bond be, and what are the additional fees?
  3. Where do I go to pay it?
  4. Are there any days or times of the day or night when I cannot post bail?
  5. What types of payment are allowed? Cash? Money order? Credit card? What types of credit cards? Property or other collateral? Surety bonds?
  6. Do I have to use a bail or bond agent?

If you feel the bail is too high and you wish to get it reduced, contact a lawyer or the defendant's public defender and get them to look into what they can do to get a bail reduction. The sooner you get working on this the quicker you will get your loved one released. 

This entire process will go smoother and faster with a criminal attorney or bail agent handling it for you.

Steps:
Register and/or log in.
Select the facility of your inmate.
Review the days, available hours and the cost of remote and on-site visits.

What is the Cost of a Remote Video Visit?
Costs vary and are subject to change, but generally visits range from $5.00 to $15.00 for a 15 to 30 minute online or on-site video visit.

How do you know if your Inmate will be available during the time you schedule?
The Securus system knows the times that Mahoning County Jail inmates are available for remote video visits.
