Toledo Correctional Institution has been cited for major problems in several
areas after a recent inspection.
164-page report was released Thursday by the Correctional Institution
Inspection Committee. It cited the Toledo Correctional Institution for high
employee turnover rates, significant increases in assaults, rampant drug
trading, and three homicides in just the past year.
report shows that inmate-on-inmate assaults increased by nearly 113 percent,
and inmate-on-staff assaults increased nearly 74 percent from 2010 to 2012.
to the report, the facility was built to be a single-celled facility, but in
early 2011, due to overcrowding, the cells were double-bunked. This resulted in
double the population for staff to supervise, and increasing inmate complaints,
as well as violence.
from violence, the report also states concerns about a high percentage of
inmate who tested positive for drugs.
report does say Warden Edward Sheldon is aware of the concerns and is working
to address them.
News Now put a call in to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and
Corrections, but has not heard back.
