Facility Information

The Lucas County Corrections Center, located in Toledo, Ohio, is a county-run adult detention facility.  It is operated by the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office.  In the state of Ohio, the county sheriff is considered the chief law enforcement officer for each county.  The sheriff has a wide range of responsibilities, including: law enforcement, court security, service of process, jail operations, handling the extradition process, transportation of prisoners, and maintaining a full police jurisdiction in all of the townships, villages, and municipalities in Lucas County.

The Lucas County Corrections Center is a full-service adult detention facility.  The jail opened in 1977.  It is located in downtown Toledo in a high-rise facility.  The jail is not structured like a typical jail facility.  Instead, it has nine floors, including 6 levels for inmate housing.  The recommended capacity of the jail is 346 inmates.  There is a separate booking are with a recommended capacity of 51 inmates.

The Lucas County Corrections Center is primarily a pre-trial facility.  A pre-trial facility holds defendants who have been accused of crime, but are facing trial.   These inmates are either ineligible for bail or have been unable to pay bail that has been assessed.  The determination of whether an inmate is eligible for bail is a complex decision, as is the determination of the appropriate amount of bail for an offender.  Bail is not mean to be punitive, but merely to ensure that a defendant appears at trial.  However, bail amounts are higher when defendants are accused of serious crimes because the possibility of greater penalties gives defendants greater incentive to fail to appear at trial.

Most inmates in the Lucas County Corrections Center are there because they are facing serious felony charges.  While incarcerated at the Lucas County Corrections Center, inmates have access to a range of services including, but not limited to: medical services, drug and alcohol treatment, recreation, library, religious services, counseling, and visitation.

A complete return address includes a full name and address for the sender.  In addition, the name and address on the envelope should be from the actual sender; mail from a third party may be rejected.  In addition, depending on the individual inmate’s mail rules, you may be helping an inmate violate the rules and even break the law if you agree to send or receive mail for a third party on behalf of an inmate or for the inmate on behalf of a third party.

Bail Information

In Lucas County, there are four different types of bonds that may be ordered for a defendant.  The type of bond depends on several different factors.  You may also post the full amount of any ordered bail, which may sometimes be described as a cash bond.  For non-cash bonds, you will need to secure the services of a bonding company, also known as a bail bondsman. 

The four types of bonds are: the surety bond, the 10% bond, the full cost bond, and the property bond.  With a surety bond, the bonding companies issue insurance papers guaranteeing the full amount of a required bond if a defendant fails to appear in court.  With a 10% bond, the individual deposits 10% of the ordered bond with the court.  With a full cost bond, the individual must pay the full amount that the judge ordered.  With a property pond, the guarantor can post their property in lieu of cash to ensure that a defendant appears in court.
