CI Great Plains Prison Services Information
CI Great Plains is a contracted correctional institution operated by the private prison corporation The GEO Group, Inc. It opened in 1991 as the state’s first private correctional facility. It is now under contract with the federal government.
The American Correctional Association (ACA) initially accredited the facility in 2017. It is one of the few remaining private facilities contracted to house federal inmates.
From 2000 to 2007, the prison housed prisoners for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. Upon termination of this contract, the facility housed Arizona state inmates until 2010. The facility was then empty from 2010 to 2014.
In 2014, the Federal Bureau of Prisons contracted with Great Plains Correctional Facility to house federal inmates. These inmates are primarily low-risk, deportable aliens with less than a year remaining on their sentence. While these are the target inmate demographics, a recent PREA audit report indicates the average imprisonment length as 48 months.
Located in Hinton, Oklahoma, it is owned by the Hinton Economic Development Authority. The facility is Hinton’s largest employer of community residents.
Inmates are housed in cell and dormitory-style settings. Restrooms are available inside each cell.
The facility has five main housing units and one Restrictive Housing Unit.
