Supervision

The Board of Parole is responsible for setting supervision requirements and conditions for individuals releasing from Oregon prisons. The Board is also responsible for issuing warrants and approving sanctions for violation behavior up to and including a return to prison. The Board is not responsible for the day-to-day supervision of individuals on post-prison supervision or parole. Instead, the Oregon Department of Corrections and local county community correction agencies do that work. However, the Board maintains meaningful partnerships with the Oregon Department of Corrections and local community corrections offices to ensure the best possible chance for success as well as a seamless transition from prison into the community by using sound, evidence-based practices.


If you are looking for a full list of general/special parole and post-prison supervision conditions please refer to Exhibit J to Oregon Administrative Rule 255-005. You can find it here.


Forms for Offenders on Supervision

Occasionally it may be neccesary for a supervising officer to modify the conditions of an indivdual's supervision. In this case, a consent to modify form will need to be signed by the offender and submitted to the board. You can find that form here

Under ordinary circumstances the Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision will not approve requests to allow offenders on parole or post-prison supervision to act as informants for law enforcement agencies. There are circumstances, however, where the Board may authorize such activity if the situation is important enough to justify placing the offender in association with criminal activity.​​​ The request form is here​​​.
