Information on the St. Croix Correctional Center (SCCC)
The St. Croix Correctional Center is located in the city of New Richmond and was styled into the Challenge Incarceration Program (CIP) in January 1991. The site consists of a 56,000 square foot metal fabricated structure, completed in 1994, and expanded in 2014. This structure houses the center’s administrative and staff offices, inmate dormitories, food services, a combined dining hall/gymnasium, laundry, and general support services. A modular structure was also built in 2003 to house female offenders in separate dormitories. Fifty-six staff (31 security and 25 non-security) members provide supervision and programming.
Programs offered at SCCC
The CIP is designed in a manner in which a participant may successfully complete all program components in a minimum of 180 days. The program is voluntary; however all program elements are mandatory. Program components are structured around discipline and rehabilitative programming. Inmates are given an opportunity to develop life skills needed for the successful return to the community and to remain crime and chemical free. The program includes rigorous physical activity, manual work assignments: regimentation and discipline: instruction on military bearing; intensive AODA treatment; individualized educational programming; and in depth group interaction addressing rational thinking and responsible behavior.
Our past and future efforts have and will remain consistent with our desire to work closely with the community and to provide the best possible corrections programming for the greatest number of offenders while affording a safe and protected environment for all.
