SOLON, OH — The Solon Police Department offered a closer look inside the Solon Detention Facility after Cleveland city council member Zack Reed arrived Wednesday morning.

Earlier this month, Reed was convicted of OVI and a large part of a 180-day sentence was suspended, leaving Reed to spend 10 days behind bars.

He was scheduled to report to the Cleveland House of Corrections in Highland Hills Wednesday morning, but will serve at the Solon Detention Facility instead due to safety and staffing issues.

The Solon Police Department says the facility houses over 1,900 inmates annually from various local, state and federal agencies. Both pre-sentence and sentenced prisoners can be housed there for up to a year and a half.

The facility has a capacity of 26 and inmates are separated into various cell, dormitory and special needs areas.

Authorities say Reed’s housing, food and sundries will be the same as any other inmate without special considerations being made.
