Marshall E. Sherrer Correctional Center (MSCC) is located at the intersection of 14th and Vliet in Milwaukee. The center opened in 1981 and has a current operating capacity of 60 adult male inmates. MSCC is part of the Wisconsin Correctional Center System, an "institution" comprised of 14 adult, male correctional centers overseen by a single warden whose office is centrally located in Madison.
MSCC offers work release programs with local employers through which employment is provided for qualified inmates, with an emphasis on maintaining employment after the inmate’s release. Funds earned through work release can be used to pay fees, restitution and other obligations. Offsite work opportunities are determined based on an evaluation of risk and of each individual’s case. Placements cannot be guaranteed for all eligible inmates. Work release and offsite opportunities are a privilege, not a right, and are provided at the discretion of the center superintendent and warden. Additional programs vary and are available for inmates with identified needs, based on available volunteers and community partners.
MSCC community service crews assist local government agencies and non-profit organizations on a variety of work projects, incorporating a positive work experience, building new skills, and giving back to the community.
