Lima Prison Has New Chief

January 29, 2015-

Ed Sheldon was named the new warden at Allen Oakwood Correctional Institution in Lima earlier this week.  Sheldon replaces the position held by Kevin Jones after Jones was reassigned to a position in Columbus following an escape of three inmates September 11, 2014.

Ed Sheldon was the former warden at Toledo Correctional Institution where he was credited with turning around that prison.  The Toledo Correctional Institution had high levels of violence, including inmate murders, low staff morale and turnover issues.
