Lorain Correctional Institution Ohio

Lorain Correctional Institution

Lorain Correctional Institution is located in Grafton Ohio.  It is a reception center for male inmates located in the Northern part of the state.  Because it is a reception center it houses inmates of all security levels from minimum to closed custody.  Lorain Correctional Institution tries to process inmates within 30 days but due to continual overcrowding many inmates end up here for longer periods of time while they await classification.

Lorain Correctional Facility houses most offenders for a short term while they are classified and moved to the appropriate facility, because of this programs offered here are limited.  One of the programs offered here is a Bee Keeping program which teaches inmates biology, hive maintenance, and harvesting of honey.  Offenders at this facility can receive adult basic education classes and earn a GED during their incarceration.
