The Oklahoma Department of Corrections will reinstate visitation this weekend at the medium-security units of Joseph Harp Correctional Center, Lexington Correctional Center, James Crabtree Correctional Center and Oklahoma State Penitentiary.

Normal operations including visitation have resumed at nine state correctional centers and four minimum security units at four facilities, including the Lexington Correctional Center.

Five state facilities – North Fork, Dick Conner, Mack Alford, Jim E. Hamilton and Northeast Oklahoma correctional centers – remain locked down.

Also continuing on lock down are the Lawton, Davis and Cimarron private correctional facilities.

The statewide lock down began after gang fights broke out in a half-dozen prisons during the September 14 weekend.

The violence left one man dead and 36 injured.

The department has no timelime when the remaining locked down prisons return to normal operations.
