ODOC to vacate Cimarron Correctional Facility

ODOC to vacate Cimarron Correctional Facility

In an effort to compensate for a $24.4 million budget decrease for Fiscal Year 2021, the Oklahoma Department of Corrections (ODOC) will vacate the privately operated Cimarron Correctional Facility in Cushing. 

During negotiations with our private vendors, ODOC offered to decrease the number of beds in each of three private facilities by 500. ODOC believes this would have allowed all private facilities to remain operational. Instead, CoreCivic chose to close its 1,650 bed prison. ODOC continues to house inmates at CoreCivic’s Holdenville prison, Davis Correctional Facility. 

The Board of Corrections approved the decision during a special meeting Wednesday, July 15. 

Soon, ODOC staff will begin transferring inmates from the Cimarron Correctional Facility to open beds in other prisons.
