The inmates housed at McLeod Correctional Center located at 1970 E Whippoorwill Ln in Atoka, OK are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

The Howard McLeod Correctional Center (HMCC) is a minimum security, adult male state prison located 30 miles southeast of Atoka, OK run by the Oklahoma DOC. The facility capacity is 616 inmates on approximately 5300 acres of unfenced property. Facility land is utilized by the Agri-Services division to produce cattle, vegetables, hay, pecans, and firewood. The institution uses the vegetables in the food service department and excess production is shared with other OK DOC facilities in order to help reduce expenditures for offender food purchases.

The facility has several programs available to offenders, including a career tech program with classes in welding and machine technology. Education is available with classes from literacy through GED. College courses are also available for offenders who qualify. Self-help programs are also available and include Thinking For A Change, Uprooting Anger, Genesis I, Alcohol Anonymous (AN), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP).

History - In 1994, dinosaur bones were discovered on the land surrounding the prison. Palaeontologists were able to excavate fourteen skeletons of four different types of dinosaurs.
