Kate Barnard Correctional Center

Facility Overview

Kate Barnard Correctional Center (KBCC), named for Oklahoma’s first Commissioner of Charities and Corrections, is a female minimum-security facility. It is located just next door to ODOC’s administrative building on North Martin Luther King Avenue in Oklahoma City. KBCC’s location has been home to the Hillside Community Corrections Center and Mabel Bassett Correctional Center.

KBCC was originally known as the Kate Barnard Community Treatment Center for first-time incarcerated men. In 1992, ODOC converted it to an educational-level women’s facility. In 2012, ODOC moved the inmates to Hillside before it became Kate Barnard Correctional Center.


Programs

Education

Many inmates lack education, a key component in avoiding re-incarceration. KBCC 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, KBCC teaches them ways to avoid drug and alcohol use, while also helping them develop cognitive, social, emotional, and coping skills needed to avoid using.

Criminal Thinking

KBCC 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.


Contacting Inmates

Visitation

Visitation hours vary by each facility, but an inmate's security level dictates how many hours he or she may visit with approved visitors.

Important Note:

All inmate visitors must submit a “Visitor Request Form." You can download a copy here, or request one from the facility.

Background checks will be completed on everyone 18 or older. The inmate will notify you when the process is complete. The approval process takes approximately 8 weeks once the Visitor Request Form has been returned to KBCC.
