Post-Prison

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections’ GPS program for people coming out of prison imposes a number of onerous restrictions that actively impede the reentry process. Among them, participants are not allowed to operate a motor vehicle without express permission. They are also prohibited from securing loans for anything other than education and are prohibited from accessing social services as they are not allowed to apply for public, private or governmental assistance without express permission. Meanwhile, they are required to secure and maintain full-time employment within 2 weeks.
