After completion of the Dane County Jail Huber/Treatment Facility Needs Analysis Study, the County determined that it needed a full study and master plan of the entire jail system. Mead & Hunt was chosen to complete this project. The project included analysis of all three buildings within the Dane County Sheriff’s Office Security Services system. The study developed cost-effective systematic operating solutions as well as potential operating cost savings and long-term implementation plans.
The goal was to assist Dane County in conducting a comprehensive Jail Study to gather and impartially assess the current and future needs of the Dane County Jail (DCJ) system. The conclusion made recommendations regarding facilities and operational needs, and provided master planning options that address the long-term requirements for the Sheriff’s Office and Jail. The objective of these recommendations is to allow the facilities to operate efficiently, and to help plan for the implementation of appropriate and timely building solutions to provide for the needs of Dane County as it continues to grow.
