The inmates housed at Dayton CI located at 4104 Germantown St in Dayton, OH are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

The Dayton Correctional Institution is a state prison for women located in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio, opened in 1987, owned and operated by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. Dayton Correctional Institution holds a maximum of 938 female inmates at various security levels. The facility is a mixed custody prison that houses minimum, medium, close custody, and maximum security inmates.

This facility places a strong emphasis on preparing inmates for release through re-entry programs. Re-entry programs teach inmates the skills they will need for job interviews, resume writing, and re-establishing themselves in society. Academic courses teach adult basic education and provide inmate courses and testing to earn a GED.

Dayton Correctional Institution has an adoptable dog program that allows inmates to work training and preparing abandoned dogs for adoption. Vocational training in plumbing, landscaping, animal training, tailoring, food production, and HVAC teach the inmate a new skill they can use for employment once they are released.

Unique Programs

Release Preparation and Reentry Programs

Release preparation and reentry programs assist our Offenders for successful reentry into the community: DCI has created an environment in the Reintegration Unit which stimulates personal change, by initiating the development and implementation of teaching, training, and programming focused on transformative best practices, combined with connections to needed community resources. The Community Service Workshop is comprised of a holistic reentry continuum of care strategy; developed and maintained to give our offenders the opportunity to serve and support the Dayton Community through partnerships with several shelters, schools and community organizations. Both initiatives provide our offenders with best practices programs and processes, as well as community resource needs, based on their individualized Personal Transformation Plan. The reporting systems to monitor measurable goals and outcomes of the Reintegration Unit and Community Service Workshop helps the Offenders reach their Transformation Plan and assist them to become contributing members of society, while reducing recidivism.
