state_seal_color_174x126.jpgThe Psychiatric Security Review Board was established by the Legislature in 1977 to assume jurisdiction over adults who successfully assert the insanity defense to a crime and are a substantial danger to others. Its duties were expanded in 2007 to include jurisdiction of young persons found responsible except for insanity. In 2009, the Legislature added the responsibility of conducting gun relief hearings to determine whether persons with mental health determinations who are barred from possessing a firearm should have their firearm privileges restored.  The 2013 Legislative session expanded the Board's role in granting relief by designating it as the authority to hold hearings for those persons who have successfully asserted the guilty except for insanity defense and wish relief from reporting as a sex offender or reclassification of their risk designation.  Additionally, the Legislature provided Oregon courts the option of placing certain civilly committed individuals under the Board's jurisdiction for placement and supervision purposes.
