Corrections Information Systems (CIS)
What is CIS?
The Corrections Information System (CIS) is a computer system that has information about offenders in prison and on probation, parole and post-prison supervision. It is used by prisons and parole/probation offices throughout Oregon. CIS is one of the few corrections information systems in the United States to combine prison and parole/probation records in statewide databases.

CIS allows law enforcement, courts, child support enforcement, and parole, probation and prison officials to get immediate information about offenders in the corrections systems. 
CIS stores information about offenders including felony convictions, sentences, and demographics (age, gender, race, etc.). It knows whether the offender is in prison or supervised in the community. CIS also has tools to help corrections professionals track their contacts with offenders and remind them of necessary follow up activities.
Specialized modules add to the basic demographic and case note features of CIS. These modules track: 
  • Prison and supervision sentence length
  • Prisoner work schedules
  • Court orders for offender behavior, such as "sex offenders must have no contact with minors"
  • Payment of court-ordered fees such as restitution and supervision fees
  • Offender gang membership
  • Boot camp progress and completion
  • Offender behavior risks that can be predicted from past criminal history
  • Drug tests results
  • The use and results of rehabilitation and treatment programs
  • Recommendations for sentencing made to the court
