Three year, $85,000 agreement could save Twinsburg up to $100,000, give Solon Jail more steady income.
Twinsburg prisoners may have to get new cells by Jan. 1, 2013. Twinsburg Police Chief Chris Noga hopes to have city council approve an agreement with Solon to house its prisoners at the Solon Jail in the next few weeks. If approved, the transition would likely be effective starting with the new year. "I’m recommending that we press forward and house all of our prisoners at the Solon jail,” Noga said to council last Tuesday.

We put Twinsburg's numbers next to neighboring communities like Solon, Aurora and others
So how safe is Twinsburg compared to neighboring communities? Patch took the 2011 violent crimes report data that was released by the FBI and compared Twinsburg with surrounding communities including Aurora, Hudson, Reminderville, Solon and Streetsboro. Editor's Note: Crimes stats for Macedonia were not included in the report. Before reading into any of the data, the first thing to realize is that while the communities are close together, the populations do vary, which is a factor in each report. Twinsburg led all city's in reports of rape in 2011 (4) and finished higher in categories such as property crime (169), larceny-theft (132) and car theft (7). Violent crime includes murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and…
