The state of Oklahoma has three types of federal correctional facilities. First, there is one federal prison in Oklahoma, and then there is a federal transfer center and one private/contracted federal prison.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons (FOB) is the government entity in charge of all the federal facilities, inmates and all Oklahoma federal prison inmate records. They make it very easy for anyone to conduct an Oklahoma federal prison inmate search by using their offender locator tool on their website. Along with that feature, they provide details about every facility, including visitation schedules and necessary forms, how to send money and gifts to an inmate, directions, and other helpful tips for family and friends.
The FOB claims they are “an agency like no other.” Their vision statement reads: “We protect public safety by ensuring that federal offenders serve their sentences of imprisonment in facilities that are safe, humane, cost-efficient, and appropriately secure, and provide reentry programming to ensure their successful return to the community.” They supervise 177,300 inmates with a staff of 35,972 employees and a recidivism rate of only 34%.
El Reno FCI is a medium-security federal correctional institution with an adjacent minimum-security satellite camp. It holds 1,242 male inmates (986 at the FCI and 256 at the camp). They allow visitation on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
This facility is a privately-owned prison, owned and operated by The GEO Group, Inc. They have 1,807 federal Oklahoma offenders staying there.
Oklahoma City FTC is an administrative security federal transfer center. They have 1,251 male and female inmates there. Friends and family can visit only on the weekends.
