OTHER KEY FACTS:

  • Ohio’s CBCFs exist to provide a cost effective and safe alternative to prisons for the incarceration of felony offenders;

  • Research (University of Cincinnati) shows that incarceration at a CBCF increases community safety through use of evidence-based programming that reduces recidivism at a significantly higher rate than Ohio prisons;

  • Reduced recidivism equals safer communities;

  • CBCFs use risk assessments that were designed especially for Ohio based on evidence-based research to assure proper placement of offenders to enhance community safety; and

  • The Council of State Governments found that CBCFs are an “effective alternative to prison.”
