Toledo, OH – The Board of Lucas County Commissioners announced today that the new Lucas County Correction Center and Correctional Treatment Facility will not be located at the proposed Angola Road site. The County Commissioners have determined that they will look county-wide, both inside and outside of the City of Toledo for other sites that meet the criteria for locating a jail. The County’s commitment to a new facility for jail staff and continued criminal justice reform remains vital to the long-term safety of our community.
A new jail site must meet a number of criteria for consideration including, but not limited to, an adequately sized site that is both available, and able to be timely assembled, meets community safety needs, and that will allow the County to minimize development costs for the project. Every site will face challenges, but Lucas County is committed to ensuring that any proposed site works best for the Lucas County Sheriff, local law enforcement, and taxpayers.
