Mission Statement The mission of the Statewide Office Operations Network (SOON) is to:
- Promote uniformity, standardization and data integrity in community corrections field office operations and automated offender tracking;
- Define on-going support training needs;
- Recommend community corrections field office policy and procedure changes; and
- Address other corrections-related support issues.
SOON accomplishes this mission by increasing knowledge and awareness of the most up-to-date methods, sharing resource information and expertise, and promoting statewide support staff participation.
SOON meetings provide a forum for analysis of problems and formulation of solutions to issues that have a significant impact on field operations and the integrity of the Corrections Information System (CIS) database. Attendance is open to all community corrections staff and minutes are taken at each meeting with distribution to all field support staff, institution records offices, the Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision, Offender Information and Sentence Computation Unit, Information Systems and Services Unit and all county directors (Oregon Association of Community Corrections Directors).
Brief History: SOON was formed following the implementation of the Department of Corrections´ Offender Profile System in November 1989. This group gives clerical staff a means of communicating their needs to the information systems unit staff responsible for maintaining existing software and implementing new software.
