About the Justice Center

The Justice Center, a 224 bed facility, was first occupied in June of 1990 and has a staff of over 50 deputies involved in the operations of our Full Service Facility. The staff is responsible for the safety and well-being of each inmate, and strives to maintain full accreditation with the standards set forth by the Bureau of Adult Detention of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections. On site also is a full-service medical facility operated by Health Professionals, LTD of Peoria, Illinois, and a fully staffed kitchen that provides meals for the Justice Center and Juvenile Detention Center.

Wood County Justice Center

In an effort to effectively manage the jail population, it has recently been necessary to transfer prisoners to other jails located in Putnam County (419-523-3407), Ottawa County (419-734-6828) and Van Wert County (419-238-2464). While it is realized these relocations are an inconvenience to the families, your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated for the safety and security of the inmates as well as the staff. The Wood County Sheriff’s Office is currently in the planning stages of a jail expansion which is hoped to better accommodate the increasing number of inmates and to operate more efficiently.

If you would like to send an inmate money while they are incarcerated, you must send a money order with their name on the order, and mail it to the jail at:

Wood County Justice Center
1960 East Gypsy Lane Rd.
Bowling Green, OH 43402

For inmate information please contact the Justice Center Records Office at (419) 354-7744 [Option 3] or utilize the Police-2-Citizen interface [Some Inmate data is only available from 08/29/2011 to date].
