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.

Fight at North Fork Correctional Center injures 7 inmates

Monday, August 06, 2018

OKLAHOMA CITY -- A fight injured seven inmates Sunday at a men's medium-security prison located in Sayre. 

The incident took place around 5:10 p.m. on a North Fork Correctional Center housing unit. 

Four inmates were transported to hospitals in Sayre and Elk City for treatment. 

None of their injuries was life-threatening. No staff were injured. 

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections, which operates the 2,225-inmate prison, has placed the facility on lock down until further notice and canceled visitation while it investigates. 

ODOC will assess later this week whether to cancel Thursday visitation at NFCC.
