The George W. Hill Correctional Facility (GWHCF) has been accredited with the American Correctional Association (ACA).

The construction of the George W. Hill Correctional Facility (GWHCF) was completed in 1998, being occupied in October of 1998. Community Education Centers was contracted by the Delaware County Prison Board just prior to January 2009 and assumed the responsibility of comprehensive and complete correctional services at GWHCF.

The jail also facilitates weekly Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings. HIV/AIDS education, counseling, and discharge planning are available. Two full-time reentry counselors are available for discharge planning.

Anger management, sex offender treatment, Houses of Healing and ACT 143 classes are available to voluntary and mandated offenders.

Recreation services include physical exercise in the facility gym, activities/games and haircuts. Offenders can schedule time in the law library to work on the preparation of legal documents. Library services include a Notary Public and a leisure lending library.

Religious services can be accessed through volunteers, faith-based community initiatives, and a religious library.
