Toledo Prison to Become Maximum-Security Lockup

(Toledo, OH) Toledo won't see death row inmates after all. 

But the Toledo Correctional Institution will become a maximum-security facility and hold higher-security inmates who require more supervision. Right now the Toledo prison holds a mix of inmates, who will be shuffled out of the lock-up to make room for as many Level Four inmates as possible-- those who are typically combative and refuse orders at lower-level prisons. 

The prison's more modern design and guard's experience with higher-level inmates are cited as reasons for the change. 

Death row will stay at a Chillicothe prison, despite speculation of the change to Toledo. Instead, state detention officials made a change in inmate population strategies that makes the move unnecessary.
