Welcome to the SEPTA Correctional Facility website. We appreciate the opportunity
to provide you more in depth information regarding our facility. SEPTA
Correctional Facility is a regional community-based correctional facility
housing 106 adult male felony offenders. Residents of
SEPTA have been convicted of a felony and sentenced by the Common Pleas Court to
a period of community control. Eligibility is determined by the Ohio Revised
Code Section 2951.02 as well as by Eligibility Criteria approved by the Judicial
Advisory Board and the Facility Governing Board. Most offenders sentenced to
SEPTA have a prior history with the Court.
SEPTA Correctional Facility was created in response to the severe overcrowding of
the state prison system. Residents are accepted from a catchment area of
fourteen Southeastern Ohio counties. SEPTA is fully funded through the Ohio
Department of Rehabilitation and Correction and is locally governed and operated
by the SEPTA Facility Governing Board whose membership is appointed by the
Judicial Advisory Board and the member county Boards of County Commissioners.
We invite you to explore our facility through our website. If you have any
additional questions, please feel free to contact us.
