Page 5.  The majority of youth placed at LHS/CLS (Lincoln Hills School for Boys/Copper Lake School for Boys) are from minority groups including African-American, Latino, AsianAmerican, and Native Americans. In addition, a majority of the youth are sent here from the more heavily populated counties of the state, particularly from those in the southeastern part of the state (including the counties of Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, Rock, and Dane).  [emphasis added]

The facilities are located in Irma, 215 miles northwest of Milwaukee.

A world of difference
