The Southeastern Ohio
Regional Jail was opened in April of 1998, created, established and managed
by the Judges, Sheriffs, and Commissioners serving Athens, Hocking, Morgan,
Perry, and Vinton Counties. The Regional Jail facility is established
in accordance with applicable statutes and regulations with the goal of
ensuring public safety by providing professionally managed detention
services to confined offenders, pursuant to judgments of the courts.
With available resources, the jail offers the widest practical range of
detention options, including community programs and other similar sanctions
to best serve the needs of society and individual offenders, enhancing offenders'
ability to return to the community and live in a law-abiding manner.
