Center Information

Sanger B. Powers Correctional Center (SPCC) is located approximately three miles north of the village of Oneida in Outagamie County. SPCC was opened in 1982, replacing the aging bunkhouse that was home to inmates who worked at Oneida Farm, then operated by Green Bay Correctional Institution.  

The center was named for Sanger B. Powers Sr., who was recognized for his long history of leadership in the field of corrections, both within the state of Wisconsin and nationally.  Mr. Powers was responsible for many of the correctional programs that are now used as models in the field.  SPCC's current operating capacity is 120 adult male inmates. The center 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.  

Programs Offered

SPCC offers work release programs with local employers through which employment is provided for qualified inmates,with an emphasis made on maintaining that employment placement after the inmate’s release. Funds earned through work release help 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, and based on available volunteers and community partners.  

Community Enhancement

The SPCC community service crew assists 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.

The Shawano Humane Society, also known as SECOND CHANCES PAWS PROGRAM, is a community service initiative operated in conjunction with the Shawano Humane Society Association and SPCC persons in our care who assist with socialization of the dogs prior to adoption.
