Crimeless revocation is the practice of re-incarcerating people on probation, parole or extended supervision for violating often minor rules of supervision.
Unfortunately, Wisconsin’s revocation policies lead to the unnecessary incarceration of thousands of men and women each year. These policies, which disproportionately harm people of color and people with disabilities, tear families apart, disrupt communities, and drain resources that could instead be used to build safer and stronger communities.

A new report released on 1/22/19 by the Justice Lab at Columbia University has found that Wisconsin has unusually high rates of community corrections supervision and reincarceration, adding considerably to the state’s prison populations and costing Wisconsin taxpayers millions annually.
