StateImpact Oklahoma on OETA: Private Prison, Public Policy
Logan Layden sat down with our partners over at OETA to discuss the North Fork private prison in Sayre with host Dick Pryor.
North Fork provides hundreds of jobs for the small city, which also receives money from the prison’s owner, Corrections Corporation of America. North Fork houses only inmates from California, and officials there say they’re bringing their prisoners home.
What this means for Sayre, economically, is unclear.
