The Richland 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. 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

Pound Puppy Program: The Pound Puppy Program is just beginning at the Richland Correctional Institution. Currently there are about five or six dogs involved with the program, that were given by the Richland County Humane Society for the training. Inmates train these dogs to be house broken, understand commands, and able to work well with others so that the dogs can be placed into family homes.
