OVERALL PRISON COMMITMENTS ARE REPORTED, TOGETHER WITH COMMITMENTS BY COUNTY AND BY OFFENSE. FOR THE FIFTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR, OHIO'S PRISON POPULATION INCREASED, ASCENDING FROM 13,047 ON JULY 1, 1977, TO 13, 221 ON JUNE 30, 1978--AN INCREASE OF 174 INMATES. PRISON POPULATION, HOWEVER, DID NOT RISE AS SHARPLY IN 1978 AS IN THE PREVIOUS FOUR FISCAL YEARS. THE SITUATION IS STILL OF MAJOR CONCERN. BREAKING AND ENTERING CONTINUED TO BE THE CRIME FOR WHICH THE LARGEST NUMBER OF OFFENDERS (926 OR OVER 13 PERCENT) WERE IMPRISONED DURING THE YEAR. NINE PERCENT WERE COMMITTED FOR GRAND LARCENY AND GRAND THEFT; WHILE OVER 8 PERCENT WERE CONVICTED OF ROBBERY-RELATED OFFENSES, AND ALMOST 8 PERCENT WERE IMPRISONED FOR DRUG LAW VIOLATIONS.
