Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center

Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center is located in Uncasville, Connecticut, and it is level three and four, high-security prison for male inmates.

The Corrigan Correctional Institution and the Radgowski Correctional Institution were consolidated in May 2001 as the Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center. This facility confines both pretrial and sentenced offenders. It serves superior courts in Danielson, New London, Norwich, and Windham.

The offenders participate in community service activities, such as providing the Department of Transportation with assistance with clean-up activities in Occum and Great Plains, Connecticut. They also provided assistance at Troop E of the Connecticut State Police. 

The Corrigan building is named after Raymond L. Corrigan, who at his death in February of 1983 had culminated a 14 year career with the Department of Correction by attaining the position of Chief of Engineering Services.

The Radgowski building in named in honor of Stanley J. Radgowski Jr., who served with the DOC in its commissary unit.  He had retired as a corporal with the Connecticut State Police and was very active in the Montville community as president of the Polish American Citizen's Club, Little League and Babe Ruth League and was a member of Post 112 of the American Legion.

The Corrigan Correctional Institution was opened on December 30, 1994 as a level 4, high-security facility for male offenders. The Radgowski Correctional Institution was opened on January 10, 1991 as a level 3, medium-security facility for male offenders.

The Radgowski Annex, formerly Montville Correctional Center, was opened in 1957 and was closed in 1991. On June 30, 1997 the Annex was reopened.  In 2017, Governor of Connecticut, Dan Malloy announced that the annex will close due to a lack of prisoners resulting from a lowered crime rate.

This facility houses approximately 1,600 inmates - 1,200 who have been sentenced and 400 who are in pretrial status.
