Wisconsin Secure Program Facility

The Wisconsin Secure Program Facility – originally known as the Supermax Correctional Institution – is a maximum-security prison for male inmates that is located in Boscobel, Wisconsin. 

This facility is operated by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections and can house a maximum of 500 inmates. WSPF houses general population inmates, restrictive housing inmates, and inmates in administrative confinement in a maximum-security setting. 

The Wisconsin Secure Program Facility specializes in housing inmates with behavioral problems and who are difficult to manage. In a highly-secured environment, inmates are provided essential programming to modify their behavior to an acceptable level so they can be returned to the general population.

Inmates are encouraged to display positive behaviors and adjustments to the correctional setting. Inmates who exhibit appropriate conduct may earn the opportunity for transfer to a lower-level facility.

The average age of inmates at the Wisconsin Secure Program Facility is 39. The majority have at least five years remaining on their sentence.

Programs For Inmates

Programming at the Wisconsin Secure Program Facility is designed to provide inmates in restrictive housing with assistance needed to modify their behavior so they can return to the general population. 

Inmates in restrictive housing must demonstrate they will not create an unreasonable risk to staff, other inmates, themselves, or the secure and orderly running of the institution.

WSPF uses a system of phases designed to manage risk in conjunction with treatment/programming.  Inmates progress through three phases, with the last one being a transition phase prior to general population.

Educational programming includes Adult Basic Education and GED. Vocational programs available at WSPF are barbering and cosmetology.
