Special Historical Notes and Other Institutional Information
In 1990, the State Building Commission and the Department of Administration requested a study be done to determine bed needs for the growing prison population. This resulted in the December 1990, State of Wisconsin Correctional System's Development Plan. The end result of this plan was a $145.4 million building program, adding 1,684 beds to the prison system. JCI, a 686-bed medium security adult prison, was activated to receive inmates on May 6, 1996. A 150-bed barrack was activated in October 1997.
