COs advertise for help from governor

Thirteen reported assaults on corrections officers have occurred at the prison so far this year

The Toledo Blade

TOLEDO, Ohio — Union officials claim that staff reductions at the Toledo Correctional Institution are to blame for attacks on corrections officers there, and are using a billboard to implore the governor to beef up staff.

The billboard, which was unveiled by the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association on Wednesday on I-280 near the East Central Avenue prison, gives passers-by a telephone number for Gov. John Kasich and urges them to call him to ask for more staffing.

Thirteen reported assaults on corrections officers have occurred at the prison so far this year, said JoEllen Smith, spokesman for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. Last year’s total was 25 assaults.
