Alliance Police Jail

 The Alliance City Jail is a 12-hour holding facility (A local confinement facility used primarily to detain adults for a maximum of twelve hours) before they are transferred to the Stark County Jail pending their court appearance.  The facility opened in February of 2003 and is accredited through the Bureau of Adult Detention.

The Alliance City Jail is staffed by one full-time (Jail Administrator) and two part-time employees, under the direct supervision of the Chief of Police.

The facility, consists of a booking area, one holding cell and ten multi-use cells. Of the ten multi-use cells, one is configured to be used for those with special needs and one as a “Drunk Tank”.  The jail has a maximum capacity of 28 people. It also holds juveniles in accordance with Ohio Department of Youth Services.

Because it is only a temporary holding facility, the jail does not provide bedding or clothing to prisoners.  Meals are provided if the prisoners is held for an extended period of time during normal meal times.  Visitors are not permitted in the jail.

Cooperative prisoners are afforded a phone call as a means to acquire bail if applicable.  Bond for the Alliance Municipal Court is accepted at the Alliance Police Department during after-hours.  Bond is cash or surety only at this time.
Suicidal or violent prisoners are restrained in a prisoner restraint chair in the jail.  Prisoners with infectious diseases are not brought into the jail area.  If a prisoner is accidentally brought in with a contagious disease, either the cell the prisoner was detained in or the entire jail is quarantined/out-of-service until it can be decontaminated.
All areas of the jail area are video recorded with the exception of inside the cell themselves.
