A recent article in local media outlets detailing the income generated by housing out of county inmates in the Washington County Jail contained several inaccuracies, which the Sheriff’s Office would like to correct. There are no additional costs incurred with the housing of additional inmates other than $1.18 per meal and any additional water that might be used. Heating and cooling expenditures remain the same regardless of the number of inmates. The county charges a flat rate of $55.00 per day and nets $51.46 per inmate per day. The county of incarceration transports their inmates and pays for all medical, surgical, dental or other expenses incurred. The Washington County Jail was not required to hire additional Corrections Officers for the housing of inmates from other counties. Additional personnel were hired to meet the minimum standards set forth by the State of Ohio for the housing of inmates.
