Possession and Storage of Personal Firearms for Corrections Officers at Department of Corrections Facilities

HB 4035 from the 2014 legislative session directs the Oregon Department of Corrections to allow corrections officers employed by the department to possess a firearm and store the firearm in the officer's personal vehicle when the vehicle is parked in a department parking lot if the department has not provided secure storage for firearms owned by the officers, and the officer is present at the department in an official capacity.

Currently, employees are prohibited from possessing or storing personal firearms on building and grounds owned or occupied by the department. These rules are necessary to establish procedures and employee responsibilities for corrections officers to possess and securely store personal firearms at Department of Corrections facilities.

Earned Discharge for Offenders

These rules are necessary to implement 2013 legislation (HB 3194) that allows offenders sentenced to felony probation or to the legal and physical custody of the supervisory authority under ORS 137.124(2) to receive a reduction in the period of supervision for compliance with the terms of their supervision. These rules establish a process for granting, retracting, and restoring time credits for eligible offenders in accordance with the provisions of ORS 137.633.
