Located in Lancaster, Ohio, the Fairfield County Jail provides the surrounding area with security and revenue for public improvement. The Fairfield County Jail provides inmates with resources to help their rehabilitation and reintegrate them into society smoothly. These programs are designed to provide inmates with the support that they need to turn their lives around.

Currently, the Fairfield County Jail offers programs to help prisoners with drug and alcohol addiction, such as AA. They also give inmates educational opportunities to increase reading and math skills. This program can even help inmates receive their GED!

In addition to these programs, inmates are also able to participate in a work-release program upon approval of the prion’s administration. Each case is handled by the Jail Supervisor.

The Fairfield County Jail also runs the Fairfield County Reentry Coalition. This is an entity that is designed to keep the community secure while addressing the needs of inmates who have carried out their sentences. Return to the outside community can be difficult for offenders, so the program is meant to bring ex-offenders together with faith-based groups, law enforcement, social services, and community members to provide a congenial reentry into society.
