We are here to serve you!
The Massillon City Jail is a Five Day Holding Facility serving the needs of the citizens of Massillon and the Massillon Municipal Court District. Our facility houses prisoners arrested by all of the law enforcement agencies in Western Stark County and the Ohio State Patrol. Our classification as a Five Day Facility means that prisoners may be held here for a maximum of five days, at which time, they must either be released or transferred to the Stark County Jail. Our facility has separate accommodations for male and female prisoners.
The Massillon City Jail is the only operating and functional Five Day Jail in Stark County, which provides a great service to not only our officers, but to all of the agencies in Western Stark County who contract with us. Our Jail provides housing for over 2,300 prisoners annually. Sworn Massillon Police Officers are assigned as Jailers and provide the security and services for these prisoners. The Massillon City Jail is constantly upgrading its service, technology and policies for the safety and well being of those who come into our facility. Our maximum capacity is 24 prisoners at one time.
In addition, the Massillon Police Department provides prisoner transportation between the Massillon Municipal Court and the Stark County Jail. The Court Liaison Officer transports over 2,000 prisoners annually.
The jail receives regular inspections by the Massillon City Health Department, Massillon Fire Department, and an annual compliance inspection by the Ohio Bureau of Adult Detention.
Visitation hours are from 3:00PM until 5:00PM daily. Only 2 visitors shall be permitted per prisoner. Visitors must be 18 years or older. There is limited space for visitors, so visitors will be allowed to see the prisoners in order of their arrival. Visitors must present a valid photo ID and sign in the visitation log. Our jail is a restricted area, and visitors are subject to search at any time while on the premises. Clergy and the prisoner’s attorney of record, probation or parole officers may visit during reasonable hours, outside of normal visitation hours.
Telephone privileges are unlimited, unless the prisoners are locked down for some reason. All calls are made collect. If you have a block on your phone, you will not receive calls from the jail. Follow the automated prompts when you receive an unwanted call from an inmate to block your phone.
Personal Property is not allowed in the jail. Do not bring food for prisoners. Clean clothing may be brought for an inmate, however, it will only be accepted on an exchange basis.
Church Services are not held at our jail. Prisoners may call Clergy, and
