ABSTRACT
The article examines one study of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections conducted by the Durant Group in 2009. The study reveals that renovations and demolition are needed by 17 state prisons across the state. It claims that these state prisons need upgrades to existing facilities and new medical units and laundry facilities. It also suggests the demolition of most of the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester since they have already outlived their usefulness for over 100 years of being used.
