Prison lockdowns continue


The lockdown at Joseph Harp and the Lexington Assessment and Reception Center continues.

Officials at both prisons were contacted earlier this week and said there was no end of the lockdown on the horizon.

All Department of Corrections facilities were locked down last Friday evening due to a fatal stabbing at the Dick Conner Correctional Center in Hominy.

According to the ODOC the agency is continuously evaluating the situation to determine when to release the lockdown.

The lockdown was lifted Monday for Mabel Bassett Correctional Center in McLoud and Eddie Warrior Correctional Center in Taft.

An ODOC release said visitation at all facilities is expected to return to normal by Friday.
