The basic objectives of the Fox Lake Correctional Institution, a medium security facility for adult offenders, are:
FLCI operates under a responsible living concept. Inmates are expected to take responsibility for their own behavior and, with guidance, develop and accomplish productive goals that will help them transition to minimum custody and ultimately make a positive reintegration into the community.
- The protection of society and rehabilitation of the offender
- To provide custody and care of a select group of adult male offenders incarcerated by law
- To create an atmosphere or climate which restores the dignity of the individual and provides optimum opportunity for positive behavioral changes
- To introduce, develop and maintain correctional programs that will be treatment-oriented to the highest possible degree
- To provide meaningful work and community service opportunities for qualified inmates, aiding their reintegration into society
Upon arrival at FLCI, inmates are informed that we believe courtesy is contagious and attitude is everything. Cooperation with staff and other inmates is the key to a successful stay. That cooperation, coupled with a wholesome work ethic and honest effort, will help inmates to lead productive lives both inside and outside the institutional setting.
Special historical notes and other institutional information
FLCI in Dodge County was the first medium security institution in the United States opened under a responsible living, no pass system concept. FLCI is located about nine miles west of the city of Waupun. The institution is situated on an 85 acre plot of land surrounded by approximately 1200 acres owned by the State of Wisconsin. The structure consists of an entrance facility/armory, administration building, chapel, food service/laundry/health services building, an education building, nine housing units, recreation building, garage, and an industries/maintenance/vocational shop building. Six of the housing units are designed for 96 single rooms, but those units currently have 52 rooms doubled to meet the population demands. Inmate rooms have regular doors and windows. Two other housing units are dormitory/barracks settings. Inmates are permitted scheduled movement within the institution and rules are intended to help individuals live together in an orderly manner.
