The Warren Correctional Institution is a prison operated by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction in Warren County's Turtlecreek Township.

The prison, which opened in 1989, sits on 45 acres (182,000 m²) of land, part of the purchase made by the state after the closure of the Shaker settlement at Union Village in 1912. It is immediately west of another state prison, the Lebanon Correctional Institution. As of 2005, it has a staff of 415 and houses 1,037 inmates, about evenly divided between blacks and whites. Most of the inmates are in "close" security, the middle designation in Ohio's system. The 2005 budget is $28,249,395 and the annual cost per inmate is $25,378.

The most famous inmate is murderer Donald Harvey, who killed dozens at Drake Hospital in Cincinnati when he worked there as a nurse.

There is a state prison of the same name in Warren County, North Carolina.[1]
