Chief of Operations

Jason Sparks, Chief of Operations

The Chief of Operations oversees a broad swathe of ODOC functions and acts as a reviewer and adviser to the Director. The Chief of Operations is responsible for the day-to-day operations and security at all state facilities.  This includes the Division of Institutions, who directs the agency’s 16 state-run facilities, Classification and Population, and Sentence Administration.  The Chief of Operations also oversees the Director of Community Corrections, who directs Community Corrections, Probation & Parole Services, and Contract Services.

Jim Farris, Chief Administrator

Oklahoma Department of Corrections’ Division of Institutions oversees the operation of 16 minimum-, medium- and maximum-security state facilities, including the state’s male and female assessment and reception centers. The division also includes Classification and Population, Sentence Administration, Offender Records and Registries. The division’s chief administrator reports directly to the agency’s Chief of Operations.

James Rudek, Chief Administrator

The Chief Administrator of Community Corrections and Contract Services oversees all units and operations related to community corrections centers and community supervision. This includes Probation & Parole Services.

Because more offenders are under supervision than incarceration, these functions are a major component of Oklahoma Department of Corrections’ operations. This also makes ODOC unique among its peers nationwide, as most departments of corrections do not also oversee probation and parole services.

Additionally, the Chief Administrator of Community Corrections and Contract Services oversees contracts with vendors to operate one private prison and one halfway house.  This includes monitoring the staff at these facilities to ensure strict contract compliance. Other division responsibilities include managing all Prisoner Public Works Program, county jail and Community Sentencing contracts.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections contracts with private prison and county jail contractors as a means to provide bed space and constitutionally required services for inmates. State statutes deem the Director of the Department of Corrections responsible for the monitoring of private prisons in Oklahoma.
