Community Reintegration Center

We enhance public safety and quality of life through the successful reintegration of residents in our care.

Our Work. Our Values.

We are the Community Reintegration Center (formerly called the House of Correction). By the principles outlined in Wisconsin Statues Chapter 301, the Community Reintegration Center (CRC) operates as a secure facility for adult men and women. We are located in Franklin, Wisconsin. We are the largest county correctional facility in the state. The maximum capacity is 1,766 beds.

Research shows that incarceration alone doesn't change behavior. We believe we make communities safer by offering evidence-based programming that reduces recidivism and prepares residents for their return to the community.

Our Core Values:

  • Humanity: Value all differences treating everyone with dignity and respect
  • Integrity: Operate from the highest ethical character while maintaining a strong sense of honesty and morality
  • Security: Maintain a safe and secure institution
  • Competency: Achieve excellence through recruitment, training, and leadership
  • Community: Engage partners to increase access to services

Check on a Resident (For Family Members)


Incarceration is hard for family members. That why we created a family services unit to support family members during the incarceration period. Family members may check on a CRC resident by contacting the CRC Family Liason. The CRC family resources team works with correctional staff and you to respond to your questions, requests, concerns or complaints.

The family services team also provides:

  • Information about visitation rules and policies
  • Information about mail and telephone contact
  • Staff initiates positive family contact when incarcerated individuals are in distress or experience a family crisis
