Ohio Increases Prison Spending, Decreases Recidivism

Increased staff and rehabilitative programs could soon be added to Ohio correctional facilities thanks to Gov. John Kasich’s mid-biennium budget.

Change in Management for Ohio Facilities

Ohio is expected to save more than $13 million with the changes put in place to consolidate and privatize its correctional facilities. Three Ohio state prisons have a change in management or operations as part of a consolidation and privatization effort by Gov. John Kasich.
