The Wood County Jail had its annual inspection by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction on 10/05/2017. The Sheriff received a letter last week notifying him the Wood County Jail is in compliance with all 113 standards checked by the state.
Mark Wasylyshyn, Wood County Sheriff, is very pleased that we are 100% in compliance with all the standards and that we had zero deficiencies. Sheriff Wasylyshyn gives the credit to the outstanding deputies and staff working in the jail day in and day out and to the Wood County Board of Commissioners for giving us the funding to properly operate the facility.
The group of standards being inspected focused on Reception & Release, Classification, Security, Housing, Sanitation and Environmental Conditions, Communication, Visitation, Medical and Mental Health Services, Food Service, Recreation and Programming, Inmate Discipline, Administrative Segregation, Grievance, Staffing, and Staff Training. The inspection consisted of this Inspector receiving and/or reviewing requested documentation and/or materials, touring selected areas of the jail, and having discussions with various jail staff.
The total actual general housing capacity for the Wood County Jail is 220. On the date of the jail inspection, there were 148 inmates incarcerated in the Wood County Jail.
