Dodge Correctional Institution

Dodge Correctional Institution is a maximum security prison located in Waupun Wisconsin that opened in 1978.  The facility has an operating capacity of 1,165 offenders, and a current capacity of around 1,570 adult male inmates.  In addition to housing general population inmates this facility serves as a central reception center for all male adults in the region who have been found guilty of a crime and sentenced to prison.  During reception, inmates undergo evaluations and assessments that will determine their security level and program needs, it is at this point that the inmate will be assigned to a more permanent facility.  Dodge Correctional Institution also provides centralized medical services to male and female inmates in the region.

Recreational activities available for inmates include basketball, soccer, track, Frisbee, softball, weightlifting, kickball, volleyball, and stationary bikes.  Offenders also have access to a regular library and law library.  Because this facility serves as an intake center and inmates are housed here for shorter periods of time, programs are limited.  Dodge Correctional Institution provides religious worship services, re-entry counseling, and Alcoholics Anonymous group sessions.
