General Information:

The Corrigan Correctional Institution and the Radgowski Correctional Institution were consolidated in May 2001 as the Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center. This facility confines both pretrial and sentenced offenders. It serves superior courts in Danielson, New London, Norwich and Windham.

Programs offered to offenders in the Corrigan Correctional Institution included an extensive anger management curriculum for inmates with a history of violent tendencies. A close monitoring unit is maintained in order to segregate those offenders who have been classified as members of gangs. In this unit, cultural and gang awareness programs are offered to encourage offender insight into the negative aspects of gang participation. A full complement of educational and addiction services programming is also offered.

The offenders in the Radgowski Correctional Institution participated in community service activities, such as providing the Department of Transportation with assistance with clean-up activities in Occum and Great Plains, Connecticut. They also provided assistance at Troop E of the Connecticut State Police. The Speak Out Program, in which inmates discuss decision making and the impact of prison upon their lives, visited Southern Connecticut State University and several local middle and high schools.

The Corrigan building is named after Raymond L. Corrigan, who at his death in February of 1983 had culminated a 14 year career with the Department of Correction by attaining the position of Chief of Engineering Services.

The Radgowski building in named in honor of Stanley J. Radgowski Jr., who served with the DOC in its commissary unit.  He had retired as a corporal with the Connecticut State Police and was very active in the Montville community as president of the Polish American Citizen's Club, Little League and Babe Ruth League and was a member of Post 112 of the American Legion.

Present staffing: 434.
