Okla. Inmates Create Computer Program to Save Corrections Dept. Money

October 31, 2013  | 

Three computer savvy inmates serving time at the Joseph Harp Correctional Center in Lexington, Okla., have created a data collection program that may save the state millions of dollars, say three state representatives.

The program initially was developed to monitor inmates during chow time. By entering each inmate in a computer system as they receive their food, corrections employees hoped to catch prisoners who were getting back in line and receiving a second meal.

Oklahoma Corrections Department spokesman Jerry Massie told the Oklahoman newspaper the program developed and maintained by inmates has been in place at Joseph Harp in Lexington for close to two years.

Massie said that the program has the potential to be implemented in other state-run correctional facilities.
