The inmates housed at Fox Lake Correctional located at W10237 Lake Emily Rd in Fox Lake, WI 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.

FLCI is a medium-security state prison located in Dodge County, WI and was the first medium-security institution in the United States opened under a responsible living, no pass system concept. FLCI has an operating capacity of about 1000 offenders and currently houses over 1,300 adult male inmates. The facility is comprised of six housing units that have 96 single cells each. To increase the holding capacity of this facility 52 of the cells are double-bunked. In addition to cells, the Institution has two large dormitories to house inmates, situated on 85 acres, surrounded by approximately 1200 acres owned by the State of Wisconsin.

The main structures consist of an entrance facility/armory; administration building; chapel; food service, laundry, and health services building; education building; nine housing units; recreation building; garage; and industries, maintenance, and vocational shop building. Two of the housing units are dormitory/barracks-style settings. Inmates are permitted scheduled movement within the institution and rules are intended to help individuals live together in an orderly manner.

Fox Lake Correctional Institution offers technical training in automotive maintenance, cabinetmaking and millwork, computer drafting, horticulture, custodial services, machining, small engine technologies, welding, HVAC and masonry. Adult basic education, correspondence courses, re-entry/pre-release programs and cognitive intervention programs are all offered at this prison. Medical, dental, and psychological services are available to all inmates. Additional treatment programs at Fox Lake include domestic violence counseling, and alcohol/substance abuse treatment. This facility participates in the Badger State Prison Industries program and allows about 40-50 select inmates to work in a wood/laminated furniture factory that produces products sold to state agencies. Offenders are paid anywhere from .05-$1.00 per hour depending on their work assignment.

The basic objectives of the FLCI are:
  • The protection of society and rehabilitation of the offender
  • To provide custody and care of a select group of adult male offenders incarcerated by law
  • To create an atmosphere or climate which restores the dignity of the individual and provides optimum opportunity for positive behavioral changes
  • To introduce, develop and maintain correctional programs that will be treatment-oriented to the highest possible degree
  • To provide meaningful work and community service opportunities for qualified inmates, aiding their reintegration into society
FLCI operates under a responsible living concept. Inmates are expected to take responsibility for their own behavior and, with guidance, develop and accomplish productive goals that will help them transition to minimum custody and ultimately make a positive reintegration into the community.
Upon arrival at FLCI, inmates are informed that we believe courtesy is contagious and attitude is everything. Cooperation with staff and other inmates is the key to a successful stay. That cooperation, coupled with a wholesome work ethic and honest effort, will help inmates to lead productive lives both inside and outside the institutional setting.

The “lifecycle” of an inmate’s incarceration is comprised of three basic components, beginning at intake and continuing through their release into the community.
Reception, Orientation and Assessment
Dodge Correctional Institution (male) and Taycheedah Correctional Institution (female) function as the primary reception or intake sites within the adult prison system. During the intake processes, inmates will be oriented regarding numerous matters, such as:
• Security expectations - institution rules, movement, property regulations, and other safety issues.
• Daily living expectations - hygiene, meals, housekeeping, mail, phone calls, and visiting.
• Business matters - inmate accounts, restitution and other legal obligations, canteen, legal loans, and money transactions.
A primary function of intake is Assessment and Evaluation. Inmates are evaluated by Health Services, Psychological Services, and Classification. This process takes approximately eight weeks. At the conclusion, an Initial Classification staffing is conducted. This staffing determines inmate custody, program assignments, and recommended site placements. After the staffing decision is approved, if a site other than the intake site is selected, inmate transfer will occur as soon as space is available at the receiving site.

Options and Opportunities During Incarceration
When an inmate arrives at his or her assigned facility, they are provided with information about programs available to them while incarcerated.
Aside from primary education, treatment and skills training programs, many other activities are available to inmates during incarceration. These vary by facility and may include:
• Community Service
• Parenting
• Vermaculture
• Dog Training
• Recovery Support Groups
• Veterans Assistance
• Gardening
• Recreation
• Visiting
• Hobby/Craft Activities
• Religious Study & Services
• Work Assignments
• Music
• Restorative Justice
The DOC is a "Local Education Agency," which can be defined as a public authority legally recognized as an administrative agency for public elementary or secondary education. Within the DOC, the Division of Adult Institutions offers Adult Basic Education (ABE) and Career Technical Education (CTE/Vocational) programs at 18 correctional institutions and nine correctional centers for eligible inmates who are identified as having an academic or vocational need.

The ABE program includes General Education Development (GED); High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED); and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. The CTE/Vocational Program includes 23 vocational areas of study, with 13 possible apprenticeship opportunities. As of July 2016, the DOC has added post-secondary educational opportunities for associate and bachelor degree programs, in collaboration with the state's technical college system and four-year colleges and universities. For more information on ABE and CTE/Vocational programs, please see Opportunities and Options Resource Guide, which is available in both English and Spanish.

Screenings and assessments intended to evaluate an inmate’s educational literacy levels and needs are completed as part of DAI’s overall Assessment and Evaluation for Primary Education.

• Encouraging and establishing positive contact with family and/or other support systems to initiate, maintain, and finalize release planning.
• Establishing appropriate post-release residency and treatment plans, as needed.
• Offering options for post-release employment and/or educational opportunities.
• Providing referrals and resources for assistance throughout the pre-release process.
• Encouraging participants to take personal responsibility for his/her actions now and in the future.

Inmate Locator

WI DOC - Fox Lake Correctional Institution (FLCI) is a facility in the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. The DOC publishes the names of their current inmates and identifies which of their locations the inmate is being held. Your search should start with the first DOC locator to see if your loved one is there. Begin with the first three letters of the offender's first and last name, it does not have to be spelled exactly.

The second box is the InmateAid Inmate Search. This database of inmates is user-generated content for the purpose of accessing and utilizing any or all of the InmateAid services. If you need our assistance creating your own inmate profile to keep in touch, email us at aid@inmateaid.com and we will assist you in locating your inmate.

As a last resort, you might have to pay for that information if we do not have it. The Arrest Record Search will cost you a small amount, but their data is the freshest available and for that reason, they charge to access it.
