Purpose Statement

New Lisbon Correctional Institution (NLCI) is committed to the safety and security of the public, staff, and offenders. Offenders are treated in a humane and constructive manner and will be held accountable for their actions and the positive or negative consequences associated with their choices.  We will encourage offenders to develop goals conducive to positive release planning and their reentry into society.
