Anyone may add money to these Commissary accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds by way of the mail and must send the moneyh to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps given below:

The funds must be in the form of a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day holding period, in which the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that do not have valid inmate information if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Cash and personal checks can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any cash or checks.

Inmate Programs

Ohio Penal Industries has two productive shops located at the Mansfield Correctional Institution. The Box Factory, originally established at the Lima Correctional Institution in 1984, was relocated to Mansfield in April 2004. This factory produces cardboard boxes for various state agencies. Two of the most popular items are Record Storage cartons and Meat Processing Career Center cartons. The factory currently employs 30 inmates. The YUSA Shop cleans and deflashes parts used by Honda. This shop provides employment for 150 inmates. Inmates are assimilated to a real work environment as they must fill out an application and be interviewed. Once hired, they receive an hourly wage and can be promoted with wage increases. Inmates are required to punch a time clock and maintain certain criteria to maintain employment.
The Tender Loving Dog Care Program, which began in 1998 in partnership with the Ashland County Humane Society, was set up so that dogs, which would have previously euthanized, could be brought into the institution and taught basic skills such as housebreaking and social skills. These dogs are trained by inmate handlers and ultimately are adopted by the public – to include staff and inmate’s families. Since the start of the program, inmates have been affected quite positively. The dogs have helped to create a much calmer environment throughout the prison. Presently over 500 dogs have been trained and adopted to good, caring homes. On average, the T.L.D.C. program carries 20 to 25 dogs to be cared for and trained at one given time. The program adopts dogs out at a fee of $125 per dog. These funds are used to go toward veterinarian bills, shots/medication, food, shelter, leashes, collars, and toys.
