Apology Bank

The Apology Bank was created to allow inmates serving time in the Oklahoma DOC to reach out to those they have harmed and apologize for the crime they have committed. Inmates sometimes choose to write a letter of apology to the victim(s) and/or survivor(s) of their crime. Inmates are not permitted contact with victims according to DOC policy, so they are instructed to send those letters to Community Outreach. All apology letters are screened by the Community Outreach Coordinator to prevent any possibility of re-victimization. Community Outreach retains appropriate letters in an Apology Letter Bank. Apology letters are not shared with victims unless personally and specifically requested - we will only provide them on a victim-initiated basis.

If you are a victim and choose to read your letter, please contact us at (405) 425-2607 or at community.outreach@doc.ok.gov
