How to Contact an Offender

    Telephone calls cannot be transferred to an offender incarcerated at CCNO.   Messages cannot be given to the offender via the receptionist.  CCNO now offers Jail Voicemail as a way to leave a message for an offender.  You can leave personal voice mails by calling (419) 789-4024.  Fees may apply when leaving a message.

    In the event of a family emergency, your call will be transferred to the offender's case manager or the Shift Commander after normal working hours.  They will assist in getting the information to the offender.  The offender will be notified to contact the caller via the offender telephone system.

    If a family member dies or becomes critically ill and you wish to seek a furlough for an offender, you must contact the sentencing court or courts.  Only a Judge can grant a furlough.

    If you are sending correspondence to an offender, please write the offender's full legal name on the envelope, booking number and send it in care of:

CCNO
03151 County Road 2425
Stryker, OH 43557-9418

Mail Restrictions

    The CCNO will ensure the continuation of important ties between offenders with families, friends, attorneys and the community.  Offenders will be permitted unlimited incoming and outgoing first-class correspondence restricted only as necessary to maintain the safety and security of the facility. 

    Incoming and outgoing correspondence shall not be withheld, read or censored unless there is reason to believe that there is a violation of law, criminal activity or threat to the safety and security of the facility, the well being of staff or offenders, or to detect a planned escape.  Offenders cannot correspond with each other.

    Privileged correspondence applies to any communication from an offender’s attorney of record, including their staff; Attorney General; Elected Officials; Prosecutors; Probation Officers; Law Enforcement Officers and representatives of the news media..  Non-privileged refers to all correspondence not considered privileged.

Sending an Offender Packages

    If requested by the sentencing court, clothing for court appearances may be sent to offenders.  Clothing will be placed in the offender's property bag.

    Any package marked "perishable" will be returned to the sender.   No foodstuffs or perishable items will be accepted through the mail or given to an offender.

    All prescription medications sent to an offender through the mail will be forwarded to the Medical Staff for evaluation, verification and storage until the release of the offender.  CCNO's physician will have to approve the dispensing of the medication.
