Oregon State Records

Oregon Inmate Records

Oregon inmate records contain the official data of offenders held or incarcerated in correctional facilities within the state. This includes county jails, state penitentiaries, work camps, correctional institutions or any other detention facility. In compliance with state laws, Oregon inmate records are public documents. However, the amount of inmate records provided varies with different counties. In addition to the offender’s name, aliases and physical description, inmate records may include prison location, sentencing details, docket number, and sentencing status.

Oregon Prison Structure

The Oregon Department of Corrections is tasked with the oversight of the state’s detention and correctional facilities. It manages a prison system that consists of 14 prison facilities, including correctional institutions, a work camp, and a state penitentiary. The agency is headquartered at:

Difference between County Jails and State Prisons

County jails are correctional facilities managed by the local county or municipality while state prisons are correctional facilities operated by the State of Oregon. Prisons managed by the state fall under the purview of the Oregon Department of Corrections.

Obtaining Certified Records

To obtain official records, members of the public will need to submit a public request to the Oregon Department of Corrections. Requests must be made in writing and directed to the institution maintaining the information. Submitted requests must include as much relevant information such as the name and address of the requester, as well as the requester’s contact details.

Requesters must also provide key data such as the:

  • Name of the inmate (and SID number if known)
  • Search range for the records (date)
  • Type of records required
  • Subject matter.

How to Visit Inmates in Oregon Prisons

The Oregon Department of Correction has general guidelines on visitation rules. However, some detention facilities may have additional restrictions, depending on the inmate and security level. Some facilities have up to five visiting days during the week while others open for three days or less. The visiting hours also vary with each facility. Members of the public can obtain the correct inmate visiting hours by contacting the housing facility.

Generally, visitors must arrive at least half an hour before the end of the visiting. They’re also required to provide a valid government-issued ID during their visit. Acceptable options include a U.S passport, military ID card, passport and driver’s license. Visitors under the age of 15 may provide a social security card or birth certificate. Members of the public are also prevented from wearing denim or blue clothing during their visit, as this matches the color of inmates' uniforms. Visitors are not allowed to leave pets on the institution grounds or in the car.

Note: In addition to visiting an inmate, the Oregon DOC provides three other avenues for contacting an inmate. Members of the public can contact inmates by letters, emails or phone calls.

How to Send Money to an Inmate

Members of the public can send money to inmates using any of three services: Access Corrections, Telmate, and JPay. Depending on the type of account, deposits can be made online or in-person at any of the locations. Inmates have access to a commissary account, which can be used for purchasing items like toiletries, snacks and more. They’re also provided with a phone account, which services computer tables, electronic messaging and phone calls.

How to Find Inmate Records of Persons Held in County/City Prisons

The state of Oregon has 32 county jails. Most of these provide general inmate information using an online roster or searchable online database managed by the county’s sheriff’s office. For instance, the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office maintains online inmate data on a platform that allows for searches by name or custody status, while jail and inmate information for Washington County can be obtained using the local sheriff’s Who’s in Custody list. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office operates a searchable online inmate roster. Similarly, the Lane County Sheriff's Office provides an inmate search database that contains the details of persons processed in correctional facilities. However, some counties require that residents contact the correctional facility or the Sheriff’s office directly.

How to Find Inmate Records of Persons Held in Oregon State Prison

The Oregon Department of Corrections provides public offender information via its Oregon Offender Search (OOS) system. The searchable system contains general inmate information, such as the inmate’s first name, date of birth, and physical description. It also lists the inmate’s housing location, correctional status, and the earliest possible release date. In addition, the information provided on the OOS may include the offender’s crime, docket number, and a picture. Searches can be filtered using different criteria. Members of the public can search for offenders by first, middle and last name or using a known SID number.
