Waupun Correctional Institution is the largest correctional facility in the state of Wisconsin.
The facility houses a total of 2,932 inmates.
There are around 2,400 prisoners in the general population.
Waupons staff has been involved in several incidents in recent years.
Last year, Waups staff beat a man who tried to break into the prison and tried to rob a woman.
Another time, inmates at the facility beat a prisoner.
It was also reported that Waupoons staff threw a prisoner from a prison car and that the prisoner had injuries to his face.
On February 25, 2016, the inmate in charge of the facility, a Waupan man named Jason Williams, was charged with robbery and aggravated assault.
The inmate’s bond was set at $1,000,000.
The charges were dropped when the state found that Williams had been on the run for nearly a year.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a year later, a prisoner at the prison was shot and killed.
A few weeks after the death of Jason Williams and the murder of an inmate, an inmate was stabbed to death.
The other inmate, a corrections officer named Eric Rettig, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, robbery, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
It appears that Wauspun is at least partially responsible for the inmate’s death.
It’s also worth noting that the Wauspolis staff is often in the company of some of the worst offenders in the prison system.
A recent article by The Huffington Post detailed the brutal way that Woospun inmates were treated.
They were stripped naked, chained to metal bars, and beaten with pipes, a baseball bat, a taser, and pepper spray.
Many of the inmates suffered from mental illness, and there were allegations that staff members sexually assaulted inmates.
“When the inmate was finally able to walk away from the cell, he was handcuffed and placed into a cell,” the article stated.
“The inmate was taken by security guards to a small room in the back of the prison where he was beaten with a steel bar, an aluminum bat, and a rubber ball.
A second inmate was later transported to a waiting car and driven to the facility’s medical facility, where he died of his injuries.”
While the inmates were suffering in prison, the state was working to reform Wauspons care system.
In 2017, Wisconsin passed the Waupolis Act, which required the corrections department to make changes to its facilities, policies, and staffing levels.
According in the article, this act required that inmates at Wauspuis must have mental health and physical health care that meets standards set by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and was intended to address the prison’s violent and mentally ill population.
It also required that the facility have “a plan to reduce the number of mentally ill inmates in custody and address their needs, including mental health care.”
On March 1, 2018, the Wisconsin State Journal reported that the prison would have to hire more mental health professionals and re-evaluate its staff.
In the article titled “Mental Health Needs of Wauspoins Prisoners Are Being Met, but The Department Needs More Training,” it stated that the state will also need to make mental health appointments at Wauppons facility and to “evaluate the effectiveness of the staff’s use of force, including when officers are acting with restraint and when they use force without proper training.”
A spokesperson for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections confirmed that the Department has “revisited” its staffing levels in recent months.
They also confirmed that WPIC is looking into the allegations that the correctional staff is violating prisoners rights.
“While the Department of Correction continues to investigate all allegations and concerns, the Department is taking all appropriate action to ensure the health and safety of inmates and staff,” the spokesperson said.
The spokesperson added that WPCS will continue to be an integral part of Wauper prison system’s efforts to reform its treatment of its mentally ill and incarcerated population.
According the spokesperson, “While we have made great strides over the past decade in the care of inmates, we are continuing to have concerns with mental health services, particularly at WPPCS, and we continue to take steps to improve conditions for our mental health staff.”
It’s worth noting here that the State Department of Health has been aware of problems at WPPIs facilities since the state implemented the Mental Health and Behavioral Health Program.
The WPPI had previously been identified by The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel as a “potentially dangerous facility.”
The Department of Correctional Services recently revealed that WPPICS “has been in continuous and repeated violations of the Mental health and Behavioral health program.”
The department is also investigating the mental health of WPICS staff and the conditions of the state’s mental health facility.
WPPIC was placed on the state Department of
