Jackson CI; which is in Black River Falls. Chippewa Falls ...

I know you can find these on the WI-DOC site... I'm just in the mood to add some of my own babble.

R may be transferred to a minimum, too. I'm hoping it will be either to Jackson or Chippewa. Those are a more reasonable distance (for me) than Oshkosh or Racine. His transfer won't be for probably another year, though.

Winnebago, which is just down the road from Oshkosh is a minimum facility. My man was at Oshkosh also, them moved to minimum at Winnebago. It's a pretty decent pkace, the co's are decent, and relatively nice.

The closest minimum to Oshkosh would be Winnebago, and Fox Lake. Racine is about 30-40 minutes south of Milwaukee, and Oshkosh is 90 minutes north of Milwaukee, close but still a distance. Alot of the guys from Oshkosh move over to Winnebago.

Does anyone know which if the minimum facilities is closest to Minneapolis? My mans in Fox Lake now, and its about a five hour drive...I'm hoping he can come closer when he gets his review in 6 months. He asked me to research which place was closest to the Twin Cities. Thanks

Chippewa Falls is the closest to Minneapolis -- 'bout 120 miles away.

JCI is a Medium... not Minimum. My man is at JCI right now. There is, however, a Minimum in Black River Falls called 'Black River Correctional Center'....
Visit the link posted earlier in this thread, and click on 'Correctional Centers'... this will show you the Minimum security facilities in WI.

Fox Lake is off Hwy 33, between Horicon and Portage if I am correct, or pretty near there. When I drive to my Father's place, I take 22 North and there is a turn off for Fox Lake on HWY 33 and 22 North.

I do not recommend Oakhill, which is a minimum just south of Madison. They have to 'sign up' to use the phones and a lot of other inmates go against the rules... leaving you without your phone call. It sucks. Kettle Moraine was better... and that's a medium. Guys can use the phone sort of whenever one is open.
