Ohio Representative Jeffrey Crossman (D-Parma) spoke with AWF on August 1 about improving the conditions of the Cuyahoga County jails. According to Rep. Crossman, the funding for jails in Ohio is so low that the conditions are sub-par, creating health and safety issues for the inmates. He said that for over 300 jails in Ohio, there are only two inspectors to travel and make sure everything is up to code and safety standards. Rep. Crossman said that because of this shortage of inspectors, inspections are not thorough enough to identify all of the issues at these jails. He concluded by saying that the funding is so low that not much could be done to remedy the issues found.
