The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says it's now supervising a record number of convicts.
The department said Friday it is overseeing 61,012 people, which includes 26,619 in state and private prisons or halfway houses and 32,564 who are supervised by GPS monitors, community supervision or by probation and parole officers. Another 1,829 are in county jails awaiting space in prison.
The department says the total number is the highest in its 49-year history.
Department director Joe Allbaugh said state prisons need more than $2 billion in infrastructure repairs.
