The Cuyahoga County Public Safety and Justice Affairs Committee is scheduled to discuss the Cuyahoga County Jail during its regular meeting Tuesday after a damning federal report on conditions at the jail.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m., and after addressing several matters referred to the committee, members are scheduled to discuss the jail, according to the committee's agenda.

Watch a livestream of the meeting below. Note that the livestream will be interrupted at 2 p.m. for coverage of an OSU news conference where head football coach Urban Meyer will formally announce his retirement.

 

The FBI is investigating civil rights issues inside the Cuyahoga County jail according to a damning report detailing serious problems inside the jail.

The details of the incident involving the use of force as punishment, as well as the FBI's involvement were blacked-out in a version of the report released by Cuyahoga County last month.
