In 2008, Richland County opened a state of the art new Jail Facility with the capacity of 266 beds, in accordance with the Ohio Minimum Jail Standards. The City of Mansfield has combined their efforts to work with Richland County by housing all inmates in the Richland County Jail.
The majority of inmates housed in the facility are awaiting trial.
In addition, an auto attendant has been put into place for civilians to call in and get information on inmates. Example, if you wanted to know when an active inmate is to be released, you could call in and retrieve this information automatically via the phone.
