Transfers of Inmates in Department of Corrections

Amendments to these rules are necessary to update the rules to align with current operational practices for the commitment and orderly transfer of inmates from one Department of Corrections facility to another. The rules have not been revised since 1991, and several operational and organizational changes have occurred since that time.

Transfer of Inmates Between the Oregon Youth Authority and the Department of Corrections

Amendments to these rules are necessary to update the procedures for the administrative transfer of certain inmates under the age of 20 from the Department of Corrections to the Oregon Youth Authority, update the procedures for requesting a court hearing under the provisions of Second Look, and establish a process to admit a juvinile sentenced as an adult directly to the Oregon Youth Authority. The rules for transfer of inmates between the department and the Oregon Youth Authority have not been revised since 1996.

Program for Inmates to Obtain Driver License or Identification Card Prior to Release

ORS 802.087 requires DMV and DOC to jointly adopt rules and enter into an interagency agreement necessary to assist inmates in obtaining a driver license or ID card prior to an inmate's release from a correctional institution. The current interagency agreement expires on June 30, 2015. In an effort to increase efficiencies in the program, DMV and DOC met to determine if changes to the agreement or the rules should be made. This rule amendment represents those changes.
