Sex Offender Notification level System

Pursuant to the passing of House Bill 2549 in July 2013, and HB 2320 in July 2015, Oregon law requires the Board to complete sex offender risk assessments for all convicted and registered sex offenders in Oregon who:

·       are serving a current sentence with the Oregon Department of Corrections for a sex crime as listed under ORS 163A.005; or,
·       have been released from DOC, but have not yet been subject to such assessments by the Department of Corrections or an Oregon community corrections agency; or,
·       have been convicted in another US court of a crime that would constitute a sex crime if committed in this state.
For registrants whose initial registration was prior to January 1, 2014, assessments are to be completed by the Board no later than December 1, 2018.
Completion of an assessment will determine your classification within a sex offender notification level system:
·       Level 1: Low Risk
·       Level 2: Moderate Risk
·       Level 3: High Risk
 
IMPORTANT: The processes for reclassification, and relief from registration, will not be in effect until January 1, 2019.
