HOWARD McLEOD CORRECTIONAL CENTER Additional information:
Howard McLeod Correctional Center is a minimum security institution located approximately 30 miles southeast of Atoka, Oklahoma. Construction of the institution began in November, 1961, and was completed a year later. The facility was constructed by offenders from Stringtown Correctional Center (currently Mack Alford Correctional Center), who were supervised by Stringtown Vo-Tech instructors. The center is a 5,000 acre site. HMCC was under the direction of the Oklahoma State Penitentiary until July, 1973. In 1978, a name change was implemented by the Oklahoma State Legislature, from McLeod Honor Farm to Howard McLeod Correctional Center. The building now known as west dorm was built from Oklahoma State Penitentiary brick and lumber sawmilled from trees harvested from state land. HMCC is the only correctional center in Oklahoma that has ever utilized a sawmill to produce lumber. OFFENDER PROGRAMS The HMCC Career Tech Skills Center gives offenders the opportunity to acquire job skills in the areas of Welding and Precision Machining Technology. Career Tech also aids released offenders in job placement in order to lessen the chance of re-offending. Facility staff conduct offender self help programs in several areas. The programs currently include “Life Skills,” “Thinking for a Change,” “Anger Management,” and “PREP Marriage Initiative.” Each program is designed to address areas in the offender’s life that could negatively affect their life after incarceration.
