The Willard-Cybulski Correctional Institution and the Cybulski Community Reintegration Center protect the public and staff by providing a safe, secure and humane environment where offenders participate in a mandatory structured process that instills a high standard of accountability and an expectation of responsibility on the part of the offender. Privileges and awards are earned and any offender who fails to meet the set standards will engage in a process of corrective action.
As part of its agency directed mandate to provide community service support, the facility has placed more than 150 inmates daily, in supervised community based public service projects and work details. They have provided maintenance, assisting with community events, renovations and painting to communities, the state and local non-profit agencies.
The Willard-Cybulski Correctional Institution and Cybulski Community Reintegration Center continues the mission to prepare offenders for release back into the community with a wide number of programs and opportunities. Within the counseling and programming department of this facility, inmates have an opportunity to address, head on, the causes and issues that brought them into incarceration.
In 2005, the facility assumed a major role in the consolidation of medical services throughout the agency. This initiative sought to reduce redundancy and improve the delivery of medical services in a fiscally responsible manner by utilizing a regional approach to health care. The Willard-Cybulski Correctional Institution accommodates many of the agency’s level two offenders with significant health care needs.
In April 2015, the Cybulski Community Reintegration Center was created in the Cybulski portion of the Willard-Cybulski Correctional Institution. See more on the Cybulski Community Reintegration Center.
Present staffing: 217.
The Willard building is named in honor of William Willard who served as warden of the Connecticut State Prison in Wethersfield from 1854-1857 and from 1862-1870. The Cybulski building is named in honor of Alexander Cybulski who served as Deputy Warden of the Somers State Prison from 1962-1983.
The Willard-Cybulski Correctional Institution was formerly two separately managed facilities, the Willard Correctional Institution and the Cybulski Correctional Institution. The Willard Correctional Institution was opened on October 18, 1990 as a level 2 facility for sentenced male offenders. The Cybulski Correctional Institution was opened on November 3, 1993 as a program intensive, male level 2 facility.
The two facilities were consolidated as one institution in 1997, Willard-Cybulski Correctional Institution, which enhanced facility management and fiscal responsibility.
In April 2015, the Cybulski Community Reintegration Center was created in the Cybulski portion of the Willard-Cybulski Correctional Institution.
