Visitation is suspended at the Lexington Assessment & Reception Center and Joseph Harp Correctional Center.

The facilities are included in a systemwide lockdown imposed Monday night by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

According to an ODOC news release, the decision was in response to a disturbance involving approximately a half-dozen inmates at Mack Alford Correctional Center in Stringtown. 

No one was seriously injured.

During inmate interviews and intelligence gathering, prison staff and ODOC Inspector General agents learned of the potential for additional disturbances at other prisons.

This lockdown will remain until the threat of additional incidents has subsided.

All visitation is suspended while the lockdown is in effect. The public should check the department’s social media before planning visitation.

Last fall, a systemwide lockdown lasted more than two weeks.
