Jim E. Hamilton Correctional Center (JEHCC), located eight miles south of Hodgen in southeastern Oklahoma, is a minimum security institution. It sets on 140 acres surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest. The history of this facility dates back to the days of the Civilian Conservation Corps for which it was originated. It later became a Job Corps Center which focused on training the youth of that era. Just before the facility was set to be demolished, it was acquired to train inmates in the vocational technical field. They may choose from 11 different vo-tech skill areas which are offered and a wide range of educational opportunities, such as Adult Basic Education, General Education Development, Talk Back Television, and on-site college courses. Strong emphasis is placed on acquiring educational and vocational skills which will enable inmates to increase their chance of becoming a productive member of society upon release.
