History:

The jail was built as all county jails of its era, with the front portion appearing as a residence. The front portion was the jail matron’s quarters and the inmate housing was to the rear, with the kitchen being in the middle.

History of the Pickaway County Court House and Jail: The original jail was in the basement of the Second Court House, Circleville, Ohio. The first Court House was erected in the center of the circle, at the present crossing of Court and Main streets. The building was octagonal in shape, constructed of brick with a tower in the center. It was first occupied for court purposes early in April, 1814, and was torn down about 184o and from that time for a period of six years the courts were held in temporary quarters, part of the time in the old Lutheran Church on West Franklin street and for a while in the United Brethren Church on East Main street.The building of the Court House at the corner of Court and Franklin streets was commenced in the fall of 1845.

The contract for the brick work was let on the 16th of September, 1845, by the commissioners to Jacob Strickler, at $5.40 per thousand “to be counted in the walls and no deductions for openings,” and the same day a contract was made with Joseph Kinnear for the delivery of the lumber at 8o cents per thousand feet, inch measure. The building was 45 feet in width by 105 feet in length, with large columns in front, surmounted by a tower ; the basement was constructed for the county jail.

The entire building was completed in 1847. The total cost was $45,000. N. B. Kelly, of Columbus, was the architect and superintendent of construction.The offices in the building not being large enough for the increasing business, and the jail in the basement having been repeatedly condemned by the grand jury, the commissioners, in 1887: by authority of an act of the General Assembly, passed May 4, 1885, decided to remodel the Court House and build a jail and jailer’s residence. On the 2nd of February, 1888, the contract for the improvements was awarded to Doerzbach & Decker, of Sandusky, Ohio, their bid of $104,420 for the entire work being the lowest.

The contractors began the work early in the spring. The corner-stone of the improved Court House was laid June 21, 1888, with Masonic ceremonies. The Court House was enlarged by the addition of two wings, and was made a commodious, substantial structure with abundant light and excellent ventilation, convenient in every way for the business of the people. Both buildings were completed in the latter part of 1889, and accepted by the commissioners January 4, 1890.(History of Court House and jail excerpt from; History of Pickaway County, Ohio and Representative Citizens, edited and compiled by Hon. Aaron R. VanCleaf)

By Kristy Eckert – The Columbus Dispatch:


CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio – Oh, the stories he can tell. Like the one about the habitual prisoner who became a close friend to Sheriff Dwight Radcliff and the rest of his family, including wife Betty. Good thing too. Back in 1968, when the Radcliffs lived in the Pickaway County jail, a band of unruly prisoners took over the second floor.Instinctively, inmate Charles DeWitt Jr. grabbed a skillet and declared: “Nobody’s going to get my Betty.”
Such tales tend to pile up for the longest-serving sheriff in the country. (The National Sheriffs’ Association recently informed Radcliff of his status.)
“I think I could put a good best seller together,” the 72-year-old mused.
The year Radcliff was first elected, Lyndon Johnson held the presidency, postage stamps cost a nickel and The sound of Music won the Oscar for best picture. During his tenure, the first man walked on the moon, seven more presidents have served and John Paul II reigned as Pope for more than a quarter-century.
Radcliff has never lost an election. A no-nonsense lawman, he has lived his job – and still does. Here is a good-natured look at the 40-year career of a tough – they don’t call the county “Putaway Pickaway” for nothing – but caring sheriff.

FAMILY LEGACY DEFINES OFFICE
By Kristy Eckert “THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH”

Below: Dwight Radcliff left as a deputy for his father, Sheriff Charles Radcliff

A Radcliff has held the position of Pickaway County Sheriff for 66 of the past 70 years – and what has stayed in the family might remain there. Charles Radcliff served from 1931 to 1961. Four years later, his son, Dwight, beat the man who defeated his father – and has won every election since. And Dwight’s son, Lt. Robert Radcliff, expects to run for sheriff someday.He was once picked up at school after authorities discovered a plan to abduct him or a sibling to hold for ransom. He started working for the sheriff in 1980, as a deputy in the crime lab.
Yet he would never be caught calling anyone “Dad” on the job. “He is my boss, and I respect him. And I admire him. And I look up to him,” the son said. “And I am loyal to him, dedicated to him.” He paused, then smiled. “And at times I strongly disagree with him.”
His father lives with scanners in his garage, basement, laundry room and other spots at home. No other sheriff is more committed, the younger Radcliff said. “You have to be able to devote your life,” he said.
Robert Radcliff has long said that his children will play a role in his aspirations. The father of three has devoted much of his time to youth sports and parent-teacher boards while working his way through the ranks at the sheriff’s office.
“We want him to” run for sheriff, said his 13-year-old son, Christopher. “Dad’s going back and forth.”
If his father were to win the post, however, Christopher – who dreams of entering the profession – couldn’t get a job with him. A new law prevents parents from hiring’ their children at the sheriff’s office. Still, Christopher figures he could work nearby.
“I thought about going to Ross County.”

“I probably will,” he said recently. Robert Radcliff knows the lifestyle well: He grew up in jail, where for decades the sheriff’s family lived.

SOME SCENSE REMAIN VIVID

Although staffing and budgetary issues often dominate his job these days, Dwight Radcliff has had some trying – and, thus, memorable – moments in law enforcement in rural Pickaway County.
A few examples:

In 1965, during the sheriff’s first year in office, a man being held for robbing a store led a riot at the jail when the sheriff’s staff was gone. Inmates moved benches and doused mattresses to barricade themselves on the second floor. One prisoner, a family friend, protected the sheriff’s wife (his family lived at the jail) with a skillet. Law officers in neighboring areas were called to help; they eventually forced a surrender by firing tear gas through a second-floor window. The only injury: a deputy hit in the mouth with a shot of tear gas that ricocheted off the building. Four inmates were charged with rendering the jail less secure, Radcliff said, and the county commissioners quickly allocated money to upgrade security features.

In 1980, Radcliff cracked a murder-for-hire case after a mother of two opened her door one night, was shot squarely in the chest; and, with her last words, yelled, “He killed me.” His investigation took him to the husband, with whom she was enduring a divorce. Four men were involved in the scheme:Two helped authorities and struck plea bargains; two, including the husband, were convicted. “We made that thing strictly on circumstantial evidence.”

Above: Sheriff Dwight Radcliff and son Robert, one of his deputies in Pickaway County
While working at an Ashville carryout in 1981, retiree Harold Flowers was robbed, kidnapped, shot in the head and left near a creek. Radcliff still remembers what Flowers was wearing when the body was found: light-brown slacks, a shirt and brown tie. And he recalls having to break the news to the victim’s wife, son and daughter. The sheriff hasn’t forgotten the killer: Willie Adkins. “He was the hardest guy I ever had to break, in an investigation I’ve had. And finally he broke – and I broke him on the sympathy of knowing his family and his mother and his sisters, and all these kinds of people.”
BY THE NUMBERSHow much coffee has he drank, and how many doughnuts has he eaten? Those figures couldn’t be tallied – because the sheriff rarely drinks the former and simply doesn’t eat the latter.

IN HIS WORDS

“As long as I’m here, as long as I’m in this office, I’m going to be involved.”
March 2004, during his primary campaign

“I just love to go to work. I love my job.”
May 2004, after his primary victory

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT RADCLIFF

“I can get a lot of advice just from looking at that picture because I know how much he ment to me and how much he taught me…. That man is the greatest man in the history of my life.”
May 1987, on the office photo of his father, 30-year Sheriff Charles Radcliff
“He’s a 24/7 sheriff. He wants to know everything that’s going on because he cares.”
Ula Jean Metzler, Pickaway County commissioner
“There’s one thing about Pickaway County: If you get in trouble here, you pay – you pay the price. That’s why they call it ‘Putaway Pickaway.’”
Circleville resident Geneva Welsh, looking back on her arrest for driving under the influence
“He doesn’t have any hobbies, He doesn’t go golfing; he doesn’t fish. Christmas Day they go to the jail to visit the prisoners…. He loves what he does.”
– Lt. Robert Radcliff, the Sheriff’s son
“What are you doing up here? Don’t you know who you’re talking to?…You don’t come in Pickaway County unless you notify me.”
– Ross County Sheriff Ron Nichols, recalling what Radcliff said as both closed in on a bank-robbery suspect in Pickaway County.
“Sheriff, don’t get so mad. I learned from the best. I learned from you.”
what Nichols responded
“He’s a good man – a very good man. This county’s lucky to have him for all these years.”
Joyce Sedlak, retired probation officer
“We’re driving across (Rt.) 35, and he’s driving like a bat out of hell. And I put my seat belt on, and I said, ‘Where’s your seat belt?’ And he said, ’I’m sitting on it.’ “
– former Prosecutor and Commissioner Bob Huffer, remembering a 1965 drive with Radcliff to Green County, where a Pickaway County killer had been caught
“He can remember any case. Like 50 years ago – when it was and what happened and who got arrested. I think he has a photographic memory.”
– Jean Droste, Circleville Mayor
“Nothing escapes him….He watches everything. He doesn’t miss a trick.”
– Harry Rubin, owner of Block’s Shoe Store in Circleville

Take the time to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and our RSS feed. Download mobile apps such as Twitter or Facebook to receive up to minute notifications on news and snow emergency alerts. Use our secure online CrimeReports to submit a tip anonymously about suspicious crime in your area. Look into our new active inmates listings under booking search. We have also implemented a mobile device friendly view when browsing our site on your mobile device such as an iPhone, Droid, and Blackberry. The site will automatically detect the connecting mobile device, and make our site easily viewable.
