Risk Assessment

The Board of Parole uses the Static-99R risk assessment tool to determine the notification level of adult male registrants. The Static-99R is the most widely used sex offender risk assessment tool and is used throughout the United States and around the world. The Static-99R assess the relative risk of an individual to reoffend sexually based on the 10 risk domains most closely related to sexual recidivism. More information on the Static-99R Risk Assessment tool can be found here.

For registrants who do not qualify for the Static-99R risk assessment (i.e. females, juveniles, and certain other registerable offenses) the LS/CMI and an in person evaluation will be completed to determine a registrants notification level.

For historical registrants, the Board uses this methodology to calculate age (Item 1 on the Static-99R).

Notification Levels

There are three Sex Offender Notification Levels (I, II, III) that represent the range of people, schools, and businesses in the community who may receive notification about a registrant. This notification is based on the level an individual has been given. If you do not know your current notification level, please contact the Oregon State Police Sex Offender Registration Unit at (503) 934-1258 or email at Sexoffender.Questions@osp.oregon.gov. Below is a list of those who may receive notification on a registrant if the registrant has been classified as:

Level I (low):

  • A person that lives with the registrant.

Level II (moderate):

  • A person whom the registrant is in a relationship with
  • Residential Neighbors and churches
  • Community parks, schools, and child care centers
  • Convenience stores and businesses
  • Other places that children or other potential victims may frequent
  • Long term and residential care facilities

Level III (high):
