Washington Corrections Center (WCC) is the state's intake facility for inmates who enter the state prison system from city and county correctional facilities. It houses 1,268 medium, close and maximum custody male inmates. Class II operations at WCC are as follows:
CI Food Service vertically integrates with CI's food factory production by serving CI produced foods accompanied by non-CI produced products. The centralization of purchasing and use of a statewide standard 4-week cycle menu has stabilized facility food service budgets. The 4-week cycle menu provides for nationally recommended allowances for basic nutrition, which are reviewed annually. In addition to serving daily meals, CI Food Service also utilizes idle time to repackage powdered milk, resulting in annual savings and additional training opportunities. While working for CI Food Service, inmate workers receive a full scope of food service skills and have the ability to earn ServSafe® food manager certification, a nationally recognized food safety certification. CI Food Service operates two shifts, seven days per week and employs 20 staff overseeing 88 inmate workers.
The distribution center processes 30 clothing, safety products and janitorial supply orders a day which equates to approximately 7,560 orders a year. Inmate workers process, pick, package and ship male inmate clothing and janitorial supplies for distribution to all institutions statewide as well as city and county jails. Inmates also assemble and package a variety of emergency kits that are designed to comply with OHSA and WISHA standards. Inmates can earn Certificates of Proficiency as stock clerks and order fillers. This distribution center employs four civilian staff overseeing 24 inmates.
The laundry processes on average 12,029 pounds of linen and clothing a day which equates to 2,790,744 pounds a year. This laundry supports not only this facility, but also both women's facilities, MCCCW and WCCW, and the Department of Natural Resources' fire crew gear and core academy linens. Inmate workers can earn Certificates of Proficiency in various laundry skills. Inmates meeting specific criteria can be certified by the Association of Linen Management as Certified Washroom Technicians and/or Certified Laundry Managers. The laundry employs three civilian staff overseeing 31 inmates.
