Statement about James Crabtree Correctional Center HVAC
The Oklahoma Department of Corrections (ODOC) is aware of the conditions at the James Crabtree Correctional Center (JCCC) and is in the process of installing brand new HVAC systems on all housing units. Unit then, ODOC and JCCC are conducting regular temperature checks to ensure the safety of our inmate population. ODOC has also implemented large portable water cooling devices, provided large portable fans to circulate the air, and ensured that water and ice remain available. In addition, ODOC recently approved a return to the standard amount of time inmates can be outside.
