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.



The Office of the Inspector General Investigations Unit is responsible for conducting both procedural and criminal investigations under the authority of the Director of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. Investigations encompass, but are not limited to: Prison Rape Elimination Act complaints, criminal investigations that occur in an Oklahoma Department of Corrections facility, major policy violations, unattended deaths, background investigations, and other administrative investigations.

The Investigations Unit also works hand-in-hand with the Criminal Interdiction Unit, Fugitive Apprehension Unit, Intelligence Unit, and Employee Rights and Relations Unit in developing and investigating actionable intelligence, to fulfill and successfully complete the mission of the Office of the Inspector General.
