From Ideastream, Cuyahoga County’s public safety committee on Tuesday approved a $2.4 million contract to build a central booking facility at the jail in Downtown Cleveland.
Once central booking is in place, anyone who has just been arrested would arrive at an area where the courts, prosecutors, public defender, medical staff and pre-trial services all have staff.
Earlier in March, Cuyahoga County Director of Public Safety Robert Coury presented the plan for central booking to the Bench-Bar Task Force hosted by CMBA. You can watch that presentation in this video.
