Lexington Assessment and Reception Center

Facility Overview

The Lexington Assessment & Reception Center and Lexington Correctional Center (LARC) are a prison complex for men in Lexington. With a capacity of 1,450 inmates, LARC serves as an intake facility for male inmates, as well as a long-term incarceration facility.

LARC opened in 1977 just next to the Lexington Correctional Center (LCC). Today, the complex includes the maximum security assessment and reception unit, LCC (a medium security prison), and the Rex Thompson Minimum Unit.


Programs

Education

Many inmates lack education, a key component in avoiding re-incarceration. Lexington Correctional  Center offers literacy courses as well as Pre-High School Equivalency and High School Equivalency diplomas. Although not provided with state funding, college courses are also available to inmates who can pay for them, or those who have alternative funding or scholarships.

Criminal Thinking

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.

CareerTech

LCC 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.

Courses include Auto Service Technology; Cabinet Making; CEU Code Update; Journeyman Licensing, Licensed Trades; and Transportation, Distribution and Logistics for Warehouses


Specialized Units

All men sentenced to prison in Oklahoma first go to Lexington Assessment & Reception Center. There, ODOC staff identify inmates, review their sentencing documents, enter inmates, information into agency systems, interview inmates’ and complete assessments to determine the best facility to place them.

A 24-7 Infirmary provides medical care for those requiring intensive monitoring and treatment.

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 LARC.

Lexington Correctional Center - Medium Security – 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays
