Oklahoma City Community Corrections Center

Oklahoma City Community Corrections Center

Facility Overview

The Thunderbird Motel (T-Bird) was leased by the Department of Corrections in 1970 and was originally used for administrative offices. The Oklahoma City Community Corrections Center was opened for inmates in 1971 and was the first Community Treatment Center in the state of Oklahoma. The Thunderbird Motel was also the first correctional property ever purchased by the state of Oklahoma, under a lease/purchase agreement. The center was an all-male facility until 2000 when the males were transferred to other community corrections centers and the facility became the Mabel Bassett Minimum Unit, an all female unit. In 2003, the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center, including the minimum unit, was transferred to McLoud, Oklahoma, and OKCCCC was vacant for approximately two months. On May 9, 2003, the Clara Waters Community Corrections Center was severely damaged by a tornado and the OKCCCC was reopened earlier than expected to house the displaced male inmates. In July 2017 OKCCCC transitioned to an all female facility.
