How to locate Wisconsin prisons

The Wisconsin DOC operates two types of adult facilites: correctional institutions and correctional centers. The difference is that inmates who are at correctional centers are classified as minimum security and are preparing for an eventual release.

Click to the Find a facility page. You will see a list of institutions and correctional centers. Clicking on the name of the prison will give you basic information about each facility as well as contact info.

Helpful Info from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections

One of my goals for this site is to help people navigate through the Department of Correction's web sites to find the information most helpful to them. Some of the information is difficult to find if you don't know where to look. The best way to do this for Wisconsin is to direct to click over to the Find A Facility page again. Scroll down to find the following items:

  • Canteen Property Ordering for Inmates: will direct you to a page where you can select from a pre-approved list of 4 vendors. You can order from their catalogs to send items to inmates.
  • Directions: PDF files that will give you directions to the prison facilities in Wisconsin
  • Opportunities and Options Handbook: lists the educational and treatment programs located at the various facilities in the state
  • Visiting Procedures: everything you need to know about visiting Wisconsin inmates
