Wisconsin to Close 2 Juvenile Detention Centers Dogged by Abuse Charges

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he will close troubled Lincoln Hills juvenile prison and open five regional teenage prisons

It comes amid a three-year federal investigation in which authorities are considering charges against two Lincoln Hills guards accused of excessive force and after several federal lawsuits alleging inmates' constitutional rights were violated - one of which resulted in a court order to reduce the use of pepper spray, restraints and solitary confinement at the facility.

In Northeast Wisconsin on Friday, Governor Scott Walker talked about his proposal to close the Lincoln Hills-Copper Lake youth prison complex. Gov.

The Governor wants to move more than 160 young people out of Lincoln Hills and Copper Lake, and into five regional facilities next year.

A federal judge previous year ordered the state to dramatically reduce its use of solitary confinement, shackles and pepper spray on inmates at Lincoln Hills, which is about 20 miles north of Wausau.

"It's essential that we find a workable solution that will bring about better outcomes for juvenile offenders, their families and their communities", Vos said. It's been campaigning to close the juvenile facilities for the past two years.

Walker also announced the expansion of a program for youths with mental health needs at the Mendota Juvenile Treatment Center. "Republicans and Democrats alike agree this is the way forward to reform juvenile corrections, and I thank state and local elected officials and interested organizations for partnering with us to develop this plan".

The state will begin working with counties and other stakeholders to immediately site the new facilities and plan any other actions needed to ensure a smooth transition. He said he was told the proposal would preserve jobs in Lincoln County. Only now that a criminal investigation by the FBI is ramping up is Gov.

"It's going to leave us with the same problem".

The goal of the plan is similar to the juvenile correctional model in Missouri - recently profiled by the Wisconsin State Journal - that is hailed by juvenile justice experts.

While the reorganization plan won bipartisan support Thursday, some Democrats accused Walker of being motivated by political survival rather than what's best for the young inmates. "The timing of this announcement is so transparent and does nothing to address the immediate safety concerns for staff and youth".

Shilling and other Democrats said Walker wasn't moving quickly enough.

"It might be helpful having five regional areas", Cramer said. "In terms of specific siting, other than Mendota which has to be there in Madison and other than one being by law in the northern part of the state, the rest we've worked with the county's association on this plan and we'll work with them on siting", said Gov.

Some inmates would be moved to the Mendota Juvenile Treatment Center in Madison this fall, but an outline of the plan does not include details about when all of the roughly 160 inmates could be transferred. They won't hire the people.

The state of Wisconsin is changing the way it handles some of its worst juvenile offenders.
