EOCC Vision Statement

What We Do

Empowering individuals to reach their Full Potential.

The Common Pleas Court Judges refer potential felony offenders and EOCC’s Intake Coordinator conducts an extensive screening process to determine eligibility for placement at EOCC. Once the determination is made, the Intake Coordinator will forward an acceptance or denial letter to the sentencing judge at the time of the offender’s sentencing hearing. The judge has several options at sentencing, jail, prison, community-sanction residential treatment, or community-sanction felony supervision. If the judge sentences an offender to EOCC, they will serve a period of up to six month months or a definite term of six months.

Our Facilities

Serving Our Communities

Eastern Ohio Correction Center is one of nineteen Community-Based Correctional Facilities (CBCF) in Ohio. These facilities, under the umbrella of The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction and The Bureau of Community Sanctions, were developed to divert non-violent, low-level felony offenders from prison and placed in alternative, secure, residential, community-sanction facilities that provide comprehensive programming for individuals on felony supervision. CBCFs are governed by a facility governing board and advised by the judicial advisory board.



Wintersville, OH is home to our all male facility.



Lisbon, OH is home to our all female facility.
