The Chillicothe Correctional Institution seeks to provide offenders of felony convictions within the State of Ohio a safe, efficient, humane and appropriately secure correctional institution, while maintaining dedication to the protection of citizens of the State of Ohio and the local community. The institution seeks to provide its employees with opportunities for professional growth and development through education, mentorship and training. Mindful of Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction's initiatives of re-entry, community service and victim reparation, we seek to instill in offenders an improved sense of responsibility and the capacity to become law-abiding members of society.

Unique Programs

  • Signal/ Service Dog Program:
  • Inmates train dogs to work with the handicapped to be companions, open doors, answer phones, and pick up pencils for their owners. Dogs are also taught basic commands. Some are even taught hand signals in case their perspective owner is unable to communicate audibly. Some of the animals are destined to be of service to the elderly, the mentally ill, or special-needs children. This program employs three program inmate aides and twenty inmate handlers. Circle Tail, Inc. provides coordination in the community. The benefits to the inmates are increased responsibility, employable skills, increased self-esteem and the opportunity to provide community service.

  • The Juvenile Offender Program (JOP) reaches out to youth in the community who are delinquent or at risk. The primary objective is to provide to the youth an effective deterrent to juvenile delinquency and criminal behavior. Inmates use their experience and knowledge to apply problem-solving strategies to the youths' conditions and problems. Inmates help the youth to construct personal inventories and set short and long-term goals. Without using scare tactics, this intensive program involves supervised inmate youth interaction over a three-week period, one day a week. The JOP approach to fighting crime is prevention: to step in when potential offenders are young and before they have established law-breaking behavioral patterns. Inmates have been screened and trained for the program. Inmates benefit by helping to make a difference in keeping the youth of today from becoming statistics of tomorrow.
