Facility Information

The Okmulgee County Jail is a jail facility located in Okmulgee County, Oklahoma. The Okmulgee County Jail is operated by the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Department.  The Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Department is the law enforcement agency responsible for criminal justice in Okmulgee County.  Their goal is to provide problem-oriented policing aimed at enhancing public safety for the county’s citizens.  The detention of pre-trial detainees is part of this public safety focus.  After reading this article, you will be able to find information about the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office jail, including the Okmulgee County Jail Roster, and Okmulgee County Jail mugshots.

Okmulgee County is a small county located in the Tulsa metropolitan area.  It does not contain the city of Tulsa, but does contain some of the suburbs or feeder communities of the greater Tulsa area.  Okmulgee has fewer than 50,000 people.  It was once part of the Creek Nation, but became a county in 1907, when the State of Oklahoma was created.  Okmulgee is the county seat of Okmulgee County.  Physically, the county is larger than many in the U.S., but not large for a large state.  It is 702 square miles and contains Okmulgee Lake, Okmulgee State Park, and the Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge.  This large amount of “wild” land helps explain why the county is so sparsely populated. Okmulgee County is adjacent to Tulsa County, Wagoner County, Muskogee County, McIntosh County, Okfuskee County, and Creek County.

The county’s demographics are somewhat diverse, with whites, African Americans, and Native Americans all making up a large portion of the county.  It is also an economically depressed county, with a very low median income per family and per household, and a large percentage of people below the poverty line.  These economic stressors impact the entire community, including the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office and the Okmulgee County Jail.  The county is governed by a three- member board of county commissioners, who are elected officials.

The Okmulgee County Sheriff is an elected position and the current sheriff is Eddy Rice.  Sheriff Rice operates a patrol division, investigative division, civil division, courthouse security division, support services division, and criminal justice division.  The Sheriff’s Department is also part of a multi-organization S.W.A.T. team.

The Okmulgee County Jail is a small jail, with a very limited online presence.  The Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office is currently working to change that and is putting more information online about the jail.  This information will include a searchable roster of inmates at the jail.  However, because it is currently under construction, there may be times when links to jail information are inactive.  In that case, you can contact the jail by phone to answer any questions.  The jail’s number is 918-752-0983.

The Okmulgee County Jail primarily holds pre-trial detainees, but also holds inmates who have been tried and are awaiting sentencing or who have been sentenced and are awaiting transfer.  It is an old-fashioned pod-style jail made of solid concrete, with cage-like exercise yards.  As a pre-trial facility, it has a very high turnover rate, and does not offer the same long-term services to inmates that one would expect at a longer-term facility.  However, the inmates do have access to a library and some access to health services.

Jail Visitation

Visitors report frequent policy changes for visitation at the Okmulgee County Jail.  This is not unusual for a smaller facility that holds pre-trial detainees, because actual security considerations at the jail can fluctuate significantly with changes in the jail’s population.  Therefore, we strongly encourage any potential visitor to contact the jail prior to visitation to ensure that visitation rules have not changed since the last visit.  You can reach the jail at (918) 752-0983.

Jail visitation rules that are unlikely to change include the following:
-No unaccompanied visitors under 18 years of age are permitted into the facility.
-All visitors must be on the inmate’s approved visitor list.
-There is a limit on the number of visitors an inmate may have on the approved list.
-Visitors with a criminal history may not be approved for visitation; this includes visitors with prior criminal convictions and visitors currently on some type of community supervision, such as probation or parole.  If currently on community supervision, a visitor should obtain written permission from their parole or probation officer prior to visiting the jail facility.
-Jail visits must be scheduled.
-Visitors should arrive early for visits; any late visitors will have their visitations canceled.
-All visitors must have valid picture identification.  If you are uncertain if your photo identification will be accepted for identification purposes for a visit, contact the jail prior to your visit.
-Visitors cannot take any items into the visiting room with them.
-Visitors should contact the jail prior to a visit to determine whether any service animals are permitted at the facility during visitation.
-To arrange visits that fall outside of these rules, the inmate can ask the jail about arranging a special visitation; visitors, even those on the approved list, cannot schedule special visitations.

The jail does not provide general online visitation hours, because visitation hours are subject to change.  However, this is not a problem because all visits need to be scheduled beforehand.  When scheduling a visit, you will select the inmate’s name, and only available visitation times will be displayed. As with all jail facilities, visitors who fail to comply with visitation rules not only risk being asked to leave that visitation session, but also risk losing all visitation privileges.

Inmate Phone Privileges

Inmates cannot receive incoming phone calls.  Inmates have access to phones for outgoing phone calls.  These phone calls must be collect calls or pre-paid phone calls.   Jail phone calls are monitored and may be recorded.  Any attempt to call transfer or conference call will result in the call being disconnected.
