Oregon Offender Search
Oregon Offender Search (OOS)
The Oregon Offender Search (OOS) is a public Web site that provides access to information on offenders in the custody of the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC). OOS supports DOC's mission which is to promote public safety.
The Web site will only display data deemed public in nature and thereby safeguard the more sensitive offender data controlled by the state.
Prior to OOS, DOC staff spent many hours responding to questions about offenders. OOS will provide easier access to information requested by the public. It also allows DOC staff to redirect their efforts to other projects and duties.

What information will be available?
  • Offender name and aliases
  • Crimes and custody cycles
  • Correctional counselor name
  • State Identification Number (SID)
  • Current institution and housing assignment
  • Earliest projected release date
  • Admission date
  • Photo

  • Race
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Hair color

What is the difference between OOS and VINE?
VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday) is a free service available to crime victims and other concerned citizens. After registering for a specific inmate, the person is automatically notified by phone when that inmate is released, transferred, has died or escaped. For more information about VINE, click here.
OOS is a free web-based service available to the public without registration. OOS displays additional public information and may be consulted for any inmate currently incarcerated by Oregon DOC.

Cost of the project
The project was accomplished using existing DOC resources.

Incarcerated felons throughout the country, including some Oregon inmates, often solicit pen pals through correspondence.
There are inherent risks in becoming involved with incarcerated felons. Many well-meaning members of the public have been exposed to fraud and other criminal activity through correspondence with inmates. Should you have questions or concerns about solicitations for contact with an inmate, please contact the Oregon Department of Corrections at 503-945-9090 or DOC.Info@doc.state.or.us.
