First 48 Hours in Jail
The booking department receives all offenders, inventories personal property and receipts all offender monies. During the booking process the offender will be asked a series of questions, such as name, current address, telephone number, age, date of birth, emergency contact person, employment, etc. The offender will have a wristband placed on their wrist to identify them.
CCNO has a pay-to-stay program. Offenders will be assessed a $100.00 reception fee upon being booked into CCNO. Click on the link for more detailed information about pay-for-stay.
The booking department also provides initial medical and suicide screening, photographs and fingerprints for the purpose of identification and provides the offender with an Offender Handbook. Participation in the booking process, health and mental health screening is required. All offenders will be required to shower. A clothing exchange is done whereby all clothing is removed, placed into a property bag for the offender and a CCNO uniform is issued to be worn. Women are allowed to wear their personal bra after it is searched and any metal stays are removed. Bedding and linen are also supplied. The offender is also issued a hygiene packet which contains a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, comb and a disposable cup.
During the booking process, persons incarcerated are afforded the opportunity to make at least two collect phone calls. In some cases these phone calls could be delayed for a reasonable time due to the person being violent and/or intoxicated.
Newly arrested offenders will appear before the Judge for arraignment the next regular scheduled court day. The arraignment can take place via either video arraignment or being transported by bus to the courtroom. The arraignment is for the purposes of reviewing the bond, determining whether the person should be appointed an attorney and setting the next court date.
The offender will be seen by a Classification Specialist. The classification system evaluates the following: mental and emotional stability; escape history; history of assaultive behavior; mental status; age; and, any need for a keep separate from another offender currently at CCNO. Classification will normally occur within 24 hours of the offenders’ admittance, but will not exceed five days (excluding weekends and holidays).
An orientation is conducted by the unit Case Manager within three days (excluding weekends and holidays) that includes visitation rules; ordering/receiving commissary; earned credit; request to staff/grievance procedures; program availability; and receiving/sending mail.
