​Center Information

The St. Croix Correctional Center (SCCC), located in the city of New Richmond, was styled into the Challenge Incarceration Program (CIP) in January 1991.  SCCC'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

SCCC's CIP program is committed to the use of evidence-based practices in furtherance of the core principles of effective Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse intervention strategies and in-depth group interaction.  Inmates also have an opportunity to attend school with individual tutoring as they work towards earning a High School Equivalency Diploma.   CIP is designed to allow a participant to successfully complete all program components in a minimum of 140 days.  The program is voluntary; however, all program elements are mandatory. Program components are structured around personal orientation and rehabilitative programming.  The program includes rigorous physical activity, manual work assignments; regimentation and discipline; and instruction on military bearing.

Community Enhancement 

The SCCC project 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. Community service opportunities are also offered with staff or agency supervision.
