ReEntry Pocket Guide

To assist newly released inmates and their families, a helpful and handy Reentry Pocket Guide has been created by the members of the Delaware County Reentry Coalition. We don’t want to see former inmates return to jail, we want to see them thriving and succeeding in our communities. This Pocket Guide is a great tool to do just that.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to safety concerns related to the Coronavirus, effective March 13 the Jail is temporarily suspending onsite Video Visitation until further notice. During this time, inmates will have the opportunity to receive one (1) free offsite visit per inmate per week. To schedule a visit, go to any time of day where you will create a user account. One additional visit may be scheduled for each inmate, per day for the standard fee. Offsite visits take place on a computer or smartphone app from the visitor’s home. The jail visitation week runs Sunday-Saturday. Visits must be scheduled at least one day prior to the visitation. Should you encounter any issues with creating an account, you can contact ICS Visitation Support at (888) 646-9437.


All professional visitors coming to the Jail, such as attorneys, psychologists, etc., are required to wear their own N95 mask when inside the facility.

Initial Court Appearance

When an offender is arrested on new charges or a municipal court warrant, he/she will be seen in court the following business day via televised video arraignment (TVA). If you want to be present, you need to go to Municipal Court, 70 N. Union St., Delaware, (43015), 2nd floor.


TVA schedule is as follows:

  • 9:30 a.m. Monday
  • 10:00 a.m. Tuesday – Friday.
  • Times may vary based on court needs.
  • If you wish to pay bond, this is done at the Municipal Court building, 70 N. Union St.

If an inmate receives a warrant to discharge, the officers cannot release him/her until all the proper paperwork has been received by the jail. Generally, inmates are able to make a phone call to arrange for transportation at the time of their release. Please Note: it takes some time for the court to clerk the decisions after arraignment. The process can take up to four hours, based on the court’s caseload.
