Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, ODOC has partnered with Securus Technologies to provide inmates two free phone calls each week while visitation was suspended. With visitation reopening, these free phone calls will continue until April 15. After April 15, phone calls will still be permitted, subject to standard rates and policies.

Oklahoma DOC Director Joe M. Allbaugh Comments on the Passing of Friend and Colleague Mike McCarville

Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Oklahoma City - Today, Oklahoma Department of Corrections Director Joe M. Allbaugh released the following statement on the passing of Mike McCarville, who was a family friend and colleague.

“Mike McCarville was a great family man and close personal friend who was an inspiration to me and many others. I had the honor of first meeting him when we worked on a campaign together in the ‘80s. We remained friends until today when I heard about his unfortunate passing.

“He was passionate about his work as a reporter for a multitude of newspapers, TV stations and, probably his most memorable medium, radio. He was someone you could have a spirited but logical debate with no matter which side of the aisle you sat. Mike will be missed by his many friends, colleagues and me and my wife Diane. I pray for Mike’s family, his wife Ann, children, grand-children and great grand-children.”
