Annotation: This fiscal year 1991 Annual Report of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction presents the Department's achievements and operations for the year, along with statistical data.
Abstract: In fiscal year 1991, the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (DRC) gained greater access to the executive branch through the newly created Criminal Justice Cluster headed by the Lieutenant Governor. The executive staff developed goals and priorities for DRC during an initial strategic planning session held at the Corrections Training Academy. Increased inmate productivity became a higher priority, as was evident in DRC's assignment of inmates to beautify Ohio's parks and highways. The Department's greatest challenge continues to be the management of prisons in a safe, secure, and professional manner in the face of unprecedented growth in the offender population. Despite overcrowding, there were no major disturbances, and the escape and assault rate remained low. The effort to rid prisons of drugs intensified through increased cooperation between DRC and the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Ohio Penal Industries made progress during the fiscal year in employing more inmates and creating new markets for its products and services. Through aggressive cost savings and restraint, DRC returned to the Ohio Office of Budget Management some $1.5 million during the fiscal year. Tabular and graphic data address entries and exits from institutions; inmate population by offense as of June 30, 1991; the total population under State supervision; commitments by prison history; total intake to the Department by county; prison design capacity and population, 1982 to 1991; percentage of design capacity, 1982 to 1991; current age of the prison population by gender; distribution of population by race and gender; tested reading levels on admission; expenditures and income; and staffing levels.
