Resources Available for Victims


Approved Letters in the Apology Bank

The Apology Bank was created to allow inmates serving time in the Oklahoma DOC to reach out to those they have harmed and apologize for the crime they have committed. Offenders sometimes choose to write a letter of apology to the victim(s) and/or survivor(s) of their crime. Offenders are not permitted contact with victims according to DOC policy, so they are instructed to send those letters to Victim Services. All apology letters are screened by the Victim Services Coordinator to prevent any possibility of re-victimization. Victim Services retains appropriate letters in an Apology Letter Bank. Apology letters are not shared with victims unless personally and specifically requested - we will only provide them on a victim-initiated basis.

15 Most Wanted Fugitives

While all individuals who have unlawfully left the Oklahoma Department of Corrections’ custody are a top priority for law enforcement officials, the DOC has deemed the following individuals pose an immediate threat to public safety, or have become a cold case, in which there are no active leads to follow.

Agents with the DOC Office of the Inspector General are continually working with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to track all fugitives. Agents occupy heavy caseloads and work around the clock to ensure the safety of the public.
