The Wisconsin Secure Program Facility (WSPF), safely and humanely houses, manages, and controls inmates who have been classified maximum custody. WSPF provides inmates the opportunity to acquire skills needed for potential integration into less secure correctional environments.
WSPF houses general population (GP) inmates, restrictive housing (RH) inmates, and inmates in administrative confinement in a maximum-security setting. Inmates are encouraged to display positive behaviors and adjustments to the WSPF correctional setting. Inmates who exhibit appropriate conduct may earn the opportunity for transfer to another DAI facility.
Programming at WSPF is designed to provide restrictive status housing inmates with some of the assistance necessary to modify their behavior to a degree that may allow them to be returned to general population. In order to be placed in general population, inmates in restrictive housing must demonstrate they will not create an unreasonable risk to staff, other inmates, themselves, or the secure and orderly running of the institution.
WSPF aims to influence the behavior of inmates by using a system of phases designed to manage risk in conjunction with treatment/programming. Inmates progress through three phases, of which the final is a transition phase prior to general population.
