Facility Overview

Lexington Assessment & Reception Center and Lexington Correctional Center comprise a complex of prisons in Lexington. With a capacity of 1,450 inmates, LARC is Oklahoma's intake facility for male state inmates. LCC, a medium-security facility with a minimum yard serves as a long-term incarceration facility. LCC has a capacity of 905 inmates.

LCC opened in 1971 and LARC in 1977.

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

LARC 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 on site, 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 their information into agency systems and assess inmates to determine which state facility should house them next according to their risk and needs.

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

Contacting Inmates

Mail

Inmates can receive mail at any time. Include their name, DOC number and housing assignment if known in the address.

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.
