This facility was originally built for Avalon Corporation in 1999 as a high-security juvenile facility. The structure, approximately 45,270 square feet on 20 acres, was purchased by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections in July 2006. It was determined that the facility was best suited to house community-security level inmates. The facility officially opened March 24, 2005, as the Union City Community Corrections Center (UCCCC) with a capacity of 228 inmates. The majority of the inmates are assigned to work for surrounding city, county, or state agencies under provisions of the Prisoner Public Works Program.
The concept of community corrections has been well established in Oklahoma for some time. On March 18, 1970, the Oklahoma Crime Commission awarded the Department of Corrections a grant to open community treatment centers in the state. The first, Oklahoma City Community Treatment Center was opened October of 1970. Since that time the Department of Corrections has introduced additional centers in Tulsa*, Enid, Lawton, Muskogee*, Oklahoma City, McAlester* and Union City. All operate under guidelines set forth by state statutes, the Board of Corrections, and the policies of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. Inherent in these guidelines is a basic philosophy of providing increased opportunities to inmates for engaging in responsible behaviors.
