The STAR Community Justice Center is under the supervision of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction and is a state-funded correctional facility thus the same rules apply for contraband as if visiting a county jail or prison.

Residents will only be able to receive clothing one time after their initial intake. All hygiene items will be provided at the Resident’s own expense from the STAR Community Justice Center commissary. Any personal hygiene items brought into the facility by a family member will be turned away.

Any property mailed to the facility must be sent to the following address and include an itemized inventory of all contents:

(Resident’s Name)
4696 Gallia Pike
Franklin Furnace, OH 45629

If property is dropped off in-person, be advised you will have to fill out an itemized inventory on STAR’s form. This process can take up to 30 minutes depending on how much property is brought in.

For your convenience, you can print off and fill out the Inbound Property Inventory form and bring it with you by clicking here.
