The inmates housed at Garner CI located at 50 Nunnawauk Rd in Newtown, CT are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

Garner Correctional Institution - Inmate Programs

The Garner CI incarcerates both pretrial and sentenced offenders. Through proven programmatic innovation and intervention, the Institution provides positive alternatives for inmates to assist in their successful reintegration into the community as productive members of society. Under the administration of then-Commissioner Theresa C. Lantz, care and treatment for adult male inmates with significant mental health issues throughout the Department of Correction were consolidated at this level 4 high-security facility.

Based upon their mental health needs, offenders from throughout the system, both pretrial and sentenced, are assigned here. Through a collaboration with the Department's contracted health and mental health care provider, the University of Connecticut, Correctional Managed Health Care, the institution utilizes a highly progressive mental health treatment approach. Individualized treatment plans, based upon an offender's level of functionality include extensive programming and therapy, in a group and one on one setting. The staff at the facility, both custody, and mental health, operates through an integrated team approach that insures continuity of custody, care, treatment and control.

The program is designed to return as many of these offenders as is possible to the ability to function in either a general population prison setting or ultimately to live in the community.
