Secretary Carr hosts series of virtual town hall meetings

As part of our commitment to fostering dialogue and serving Wisconsin citizens with transparency, the Wisconsin Department of Corrections is hosting a series of virtual town hall meetings. These events present an opportunity for key stakeholders to hear from executive leadership on various topics, identify areas for continued improvement and gather valuable feedback from the community.

The first town hall was held on Wednesday, July 1 to address the unique challenges affecting work release employers during the COVID-19 pandemicDuring this moderated session, panelists answered questions from employer and educational partners, discussed the agency's planning efforts for safely resuming work release programs and offered guidance through available resources and current best practices.

Over 100 people attended the live webinar, including several statewide employers, Wisconsin Technical Colleges partners and Wisconsin Department of Corrections wardens, superintendents and work release coordinators.
