January 10, 1967 is an important day in corrections history. It was on this date that Governor Dewey Bartlett made a historic announcement in his Legisla-
tive address, when he said:

“I have had prepared for introduction, today, a bill creating a new Department of Corrections. This bill has been prepared, after consultation with leaders
of both Houses of the Legislature. It is a joint recommendation of your leadership and the administration. Briefly, this bill provides for the creation of a
new state Corrections Department, consisting of a state Board of Corrections, a state director of Corrections, and three divisions: a Division of Institutions,
a Division of Probation and Parole, and a Division of Inspection. The Division of Inspection will perform duties of the present Charities and Corrections

                                           Welcome to a brief and partial review of history for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections in the
                                           form of this 2010 Yearbook. This is a unique way to capture portions of our history now, so questions
                                           such as who was in charge of our industries program and what did it look like, can be answered in future
                                           generations. Eventually, some information in these yearbooks will be incorporated into the next edition
                                           of our history book.
                                           For many years, our department has been nationally recognized for being one of the most efficient and
                                           effective correctional systems. This has been reinforced through comprehensive audits, legislative interim
                                           studies and a host of other reviews. This is a reflection of our dedicated professional employees’ “can do”
                                           culture and ability to overcome obstacles, and is supported by the narratives and photos contained in
                                           this yearbook. Years from now, the next generation of correctional employees can look at these reports to
                                           garner an improved understanding of progress and history. Also, because it will be on the website, anyone
                                           can access our history for research, studies, school assignments and an array of other possible usages.
                                           A sincere thanks and a wealth of gratitude is extended to all of our employees for making 2010 another safe
                                           and productive year. Although budget reductions placed many hardships on employees, the department
                                           continued to be a national leader in relation to key quality indicators of a well-managed correctional

                                                        Corporal Barker began his career with the Oklahoma Department of Corrections in
                                                        2006. He is a graduate of Snyder High School. He has since attended Applied Leadership
                                                        and CLD classes. Once he has taken the Basic Instructor Development, he would like
                                                        to help teach classes for co-workers. Corporal Barker has served as Caustic/Flammable
                                                        Control Officer since 2007 and during this time he set up an efficient system for tracking/
                                                        controlling supplies and organized the vehicle maintenance files to improve routine and
                                                        preventive maintenance on facility vehicles. Both contributions have resulted in increased
                                                        efficiency and decreased costs.

                                                        Corporal Barker communicates well with offenders, job supervisors and co-workers. He
                                                        represents the agency well as he serves in the community as past president of the Chamber
                                                        of Commerce, Rodeo Association, Lion’s Club and the American Legion.

                   He is a graduate of Checotah High School. His knowledge, experience, and skills in
                   responding to critical incidents serve as an excellent example of the role of a correctional
                   officer supervisor. He has received facility meritorious service awards for his heroic efforts
                   and life-saving measures involving suicide attempts by mental health offenders. During his
                   10 years at Mabel Bassett Correctional Center, Captain Ketch’s ability to bring order and
                   direction to chaotic situations, professionalism, integrity and effective communication
                   skills have proven to be an asset as he works with co-workers and offenders. Captain
                   Ketch also serves as a member of the Booster Club of Bethel High School where he assists
                   in raising funds to provide equipment and resources for the youth in the community.

Medal of Valor Recipient
                                 Donnie R. Martin
              Community Sentencing/Offender Information Services Division

      August 21, 2009, at approximately 6:15 p.m., Donnie Martin was traveling south on US 75 in a
      State vehicle as he returned from a day of work in Tulsa to his assigned office in McAlester. He
      observed a vehicle in front of him, traveling in the same direction, move to the west shoulder and
      then into the ditch. No brake lights were noted. Donnie lost sight of the car over the crest of a
      hill but saw the top of a tree shake from an impact. He pulled over to the shoulder, turned on the
      emergency flashers, and called 911. He then proceeded to the sight of the crash. Donnie observed
      that a fire had started in the engine compartment of the wrecked vehicle and that the driver was still
      in the car. He returned to the State vehicle, retrieved the fire extinguisher, and attempted to put out
      the fire. The extinguisher depleted before the fire was completely out. After determining the male
      driver was the only occupant of the vehicle, Donnie checked the neck of the driver for a pulse and
      found none. He reported that information to the 911 operator and passed his phone to another
      person to maintain contact. Donnie then attempted to open the driver's side door but found it was
      jammed. Next, he tried, unsuccessfully, to pry open the door with his hands. Donnie then returned
      again to his vehicle to search for a tool to help with the door. Finding nothing, he went back to
      the wrecked car and continued attempts to open the door. Another man showed up with a digging
      bar, which was used to pry open the door. By this time, the inside of the car was filling with smoke.
      Donnie, along with the other passerby, removed the victim from the car, placing him a safe distance
      away. At this time, law enforcement arrived and instructed Donnie and his assistant to move the
      victim further from the vehicle. After doing so, Donnie left the immediate area so that CPR could
      be administered and he could relocate the State car to make way for emergency respondents arriving
      to extinguish the flames fully engulfing the wreckage and to administer further life-saving measures.
      Despite the efforts of employee Donnie Martin, the victim, unfortunately, died at the scene from
      massive injuries sustained in the crash.
      While Donnie's day-to-day duties as a computer programmer are important to the agency, he does
      not normally encounter life-or-death situations. On an ordinary workday, happenstance placed
      Donnie at the scene of a crisis. At great risk to his own personal safety, he did not hesitate to attempt
      the rescue of a fellow citizen. Donnie maintained a clear head and did everything within his power
      to ensure the survival of the driver and the safety of the scene.

                                                        GENESIS ONE NETWORK, founded in 2000, is a Christian, faith-based reentry
                                                        program that links an offender's personal growth and positive development while inside
                                                        to the availability of resources on the outside. A spiritual transformation is essential to
                                                        the successful transition from incarceration back to society.
                                                        Genesis One's chapters within DOC facilities develop individual Life-Plans for
                                                        its members that encourage change and growth in the important elements of their
                                                        life: Spiritual growth, vocational growth, educational growth, living skills, positive
                                                        behavioral change, as well as preparing them for successful reentry. All members are
                                                        required to attend weekly group accountability sessions. G-1's Life-Plan utilizes all
                                                        available programs and drives up the attendance in each: faith-based programs and
                                                        DOC sponsored programs.
                                                        Genesis One's outside team partners with those that can provide resources to Genesis
                                                        One graduates as they are released. These resources include housing, employment, food
                                                        and clothing banks, substance abuse recovery programs, legal, medical, and church/
                                                        mentors. The overwhelming positive relationships with G-1 graduates have created a
                                                        very receptive resource base.

       Phil went to work for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections in 1984 as a Food Service
       Supervisor. He had worked his way through college as a food service worker, and was a full
       time supervisor upon graduation. His plan was to pass his probationary period, and then
       transfer to the education unit. Unfortunately, his plan didn’t happen any time soon. He
       spent seven years as a food service worker before he could even get an interview with the
       principal. In retrospect, those seven years grounded him in corrections.
       In December of 1991, Phil transferred into the Education unit as a teacher. In the past
       twenty years, He have taught ABE, GED, Literacy, and facilitated College courses. He as-
       sessed new receptions at the reception facility, and spent time managing the correctional
       library. He is currently the facility’s GED Examiner. He has fulfilled whatever role or duty
       was necessary to serve our students. Phil spent twenty-two years working at a men’s me-
       dium security facility and the last five years at a men’s minimum security facility. He has
       seen corrections change from a “lock them up” mentality to a perspective that says we need
       to effect change while we have the opportunity because a large percentage of our clients
       will be returning to their communities.

                                              Clara Waters was the wife of Dr. George Waters, who was the warden of the Oklahoma State Reformatory in

                                              ter his death she was named warden of the reformatory. This appointment made Clara Waters the first female
                                              warden in the United States to head a state prison. She also is reported to be the first female to head an all
                                              male prison. While serving as warden, she developed the educational and vocational training opportunities
                                              provided to the young offenders convicted of felonies and began the first in-house educational program at the
                                              reformatory. This program eventually evolved into the Lakeside School, the first fully accredited behind-the
