Jackie Brannon Correctional Center (JBCC), a minimum-security facility for men, is located on 1,506 acres in northwest McAlester, Oklahoma. The facility has three units that house more than 700 male inmates. Eligible inmates also have access to a six-month substance abuse treatment program.
JBCC opened in 1927 as a trusty unit of Oklahoma State Penitentiary nearby. It did not become a standalone institution until 1985. Agri-Services has a meat processing center, a dairy and milk processing center, an egg distribution center, a cow/calf operation, and a beef cattle operation at the facility. Inmate labor is utilized in these Agri-Services operations.
The facility is named for former Oklahoma State Penitentiary Deputy Associate Warden Jackie Brannon.
Most inmates lack education, a key component in avoiding re-incarceration. JBCC offers literacy courses as well as Pre-High School Equivalency and High School Equivalency diplomas.
Substance Abuse Treatment
For those inmates who need substance abuse treatment, JBCC teaches them ways to avoid drug and alcohol use, while also helping them develop cognitive, social, emotional, and coping skills needed to avoid using.
JBCC offers Thinking for a Change, Moral Reconation Therapy, and Associates 4 Success programs to address thinking, judgment errors, and relationships linked with criminal thinking/behavior.
JBCC inmates can get technical training through a CareerTech Skills Center, which trains them for workforce entry after release. CareerTech also helps inmates find skill-related employment after release.
Inmates can receive mail at any time. Include their name, DOC number and housing assignment if known in the address.
