DOC Sets New System Population Record

Oklahoma City - August 31, 2017 the Oklahoma Department of Corrections (DOC) set another population record with 63,009 people in the department's system. This is the third significant population development within the agency in less than a year. 

“As you’ll remember on December 16, 2016  we reached 61,012 in our system for the first time in our state’s correctional system history and on April 26, 2017 we announced another record of 62,000,” said DOC Director Joe M. Allbaugh. “Now we have more than 63,000 in the system, that’s another milestone for us in just 8 ½-months. What are we to do?”

 ODOC POPULATION (08/31/2017):

·         34,710 – Supervision (GPS monitored, community supervision, probation/parole)

·         26,730 – Incarcerated

·         1,569  - County jail backup (Awaiting transport to DOC)

DOC is researching options available to the agency to address the population numbers.
