The inmates housed at Toledo Correctional located at 2001 E Central Ave in Toledo, 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.

TOCI is a closed custody state prison that incarcerates approximately 1,050 adult male inmates. Inmates here can take vocational courses in computer repair and administrative office technology. Academic courses offered at this prison include adult basic education and the ability to earn a GED. The Chaplain's office offers various religious worship services to inmates. Offenders can also participate in community-based programs that allow them to perform community service in bicycle repair, caring for dogs, and collecting canned goods for the local food bank.

Unique Programs

The Ridge Project

This is a faith-based non-profit organization that offers a marriage and family strengthening project developed specifically to address the unique obstacles families face when one partner is incarcerated for more than six months. The program works with both parents not only to ensure healthy marriages and strong families but also to ensure successful reentry of the inmate, stop incarceration within a family of inmates, reduce recidivism for ex-offenders and reduce negative behaviors among children of inmates.

Reading Room

The reading rooms encourage family literacy by providing a pleasant and comfortable setting for both child and incarcerated parents. Each room is stocked with a wide variety of children’s books and has an inmate narrator who reads to the visiting children twice a day. The role of the inmate narrator is to read picture books to the children in much the same manner that children’s hours would be done at a public library. A variety of arts and craft supplies for the children are also available in most of the rooms. Many of the supplies and books are donated by employees and service organizations.

Inmate Locator

ODRC - Toledo Correctional Institution (TOCI) is a facility in the Ohio Department of Corrections. The DOC publishes the names of their current inmates and identifies which of their locations the inmate is being held. Your search should start with the first DOC locator to see if your loved one is there. Begin with the first three letters of the offender's first and last name, it does not have to be spelled exactly.

The second box is the InmateAid Inmate Search. This database of inmates is user-generated content for the purpose of accessing and utilizing any or all of the InmateAid services. If you need our assistance creating your own inmate profile to keep in touch, email us at aid@inmateaid.com and we will assist you in locating your inmate.

As a last resort, you might have to pay for that information if we do not have it. The Arrest Record Search will cost you a small amount, but their data is the freshest available and for that reason, they charge to access it.
