Challenge Incarceration Program
Group: Minnesota Department of Corrections
The Challenge Incarceration Program (CIP) was mandated by the legislature in 1992. It is a voluntary program for inmates who meet certain statutory and department requirements. CIP consists of three phases, each generally lasting for six months. The first is a highly-structured and intensive phase. Phase 1 for men is located at the Willow River site of the Minnesota Correctional Facility (MCF)-Willow River/Moose Lake and, for women, at the MCF-Togo. Programming in this phase includes chemical dependency treatment; education; cognitive skills; restorative justice; physical training; military bearing, drill, and ceremony; work crew; and transition preparation. In the second and third CIP phases, offenders are under intensive, close supervision in the community. Following successful completion of all three phases, offenders are placed on supervised release for the remainder of their sentence. Failure to complete CIP phases 2 and/or 3 may result in a return to prison, extending an offender’s period of incarceration.
