SEPTA Correctional Facility is a regional community-based correctional facility housing 112 adult male felony offenders who are eligible for probation. Most residents are third and fourth degree offenders and have a history with the court system.

SEPTA Correctional Facility was created in response to the severe overcrowding of the state penal system. Residents are accepted into the minimum security facility from ten participating counties in Southeastern Ohio. SEPTA is fully funded through the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction and is locally governed by the SEPTA Facility Governing Board whose membership is appointed by the Judicial Advisory Board and the member county Boards of County Commissioners.
