Westlake City Jail

Operated by the Police Department, the Westlake City Jail detains prisoners after being arrested either to post bond or be arraigned, while they await a preliminary hearing, or to serve a sentence imposed by The Rocky River Municipal Court. The jail has a closed circuit TV hookup with the court; this allows many minor hearings to be conducted without transporting the prisoner to the courthouse. Individuals arrested for DUI are given a breath test in the jail, as well.


Four full time jailers and one part timer staff the Westlake City Jail. It has 13 housing cells, two detox cells, one padded cell (for suicidal and mentally ill prisoners) and two larger holding cells. There are two male and one female cellblock: Prisoners are separated by sex, offense and criminal background. Prisoner food is provided by St. John-Westshore Hospital.


Visitors 18 years old and older may visit on Sunday afternoon, 1:00 pm. to 3:00 p.m., and Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
