Cicar said it was looking at three sites - in Holyhead, Llanfaethlu and Dulas - as possible locations for the centre.
Cicar's project manager Anthony Jennings said the centre would initially house only low and medium-risk offenders, but said government funding would allow them to take on more serious ex-prisoners in future.
"Indeed Saturday's press coverage was the first that members of the county council's executive, local members in the Caergybi, Llanfaethlu, Dulas areas, and officers of the council had heard about Cicar's interest in looking for a site on the island."
Cicar's project manager Anthony Jennings last week said all relevant authorities should be "well aware" of the scheme.
Recently-released prisoners would volunteer to join a Cicar centre in a bid to rehabilitate themselves into the community.
Cicar project manager Anthony Jennings said the organisation was currently self-financing and independent.
Then there is the small print: Cicar say that anyone volunteering to be included in this undoubtedly well-meaning scheme must have been a first-time offender, have no other criminal connections and be committed to changing their life for the better.
In addition, we understand that while Cicar centres would only house low to medium-risk offenders to begin with, should future government funding allow Cicar to look after high-risk offenders, such as child sex offenders, they might do so.
