Toledo Correctional Institution to become maximum-security facility
TOLEDO, Ohio (WNWO) —
The Toledo Correctional Institution is slated to become a maximum-security facility later this year.
Ed Voorhies, Managing Director of Operations at the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, spoke with NBC 24 on Friday.
He says inmates that are a lesser security risk, including inmates designated at level 1 or level 3, will be moved to other facilities by early November.
The majority will be moved to Grafton Correction Institution in Lorain County, or to prison in Youngstown.
There are currently 232 Level 4 inmates at ToCI.
No jobs are expected to be lost in the transition, and there aren’t expected to be any serious changes to the prison grounds.
Voorhies says ToCI is already the newest and most modern high-security facility in the state.
