Oregon voters approved Ballot Measure 11 in November 1994 to apply mandatory minimum prison sentences to certain crimes against persons committed on or after April 1, 1995, with no possibility for any reduction in sentence, such as for good behavior. It has been modified by legislation several times.
In 1994, Oregon voters enacted a constitutional amendment that requires correctional institutions to actively engage inmates in full-time work or on-the-job training. This amendment, known as Ballot Measure 17, took effect April 1, 1995. In order to hold institutions accountable and ensure that they comply with the intent of the measure, the Oregon Department of Corrections maintains data on daily work and program assignments for each inmate.
This population profile is a snapshot (or moment in time) of the Oregon prison population on the date at the top of the report. This snapshot displays the count of adults in custody for each category in the report for each Oregon Department of Corrections facility.
This population profile is a snapshot (or moment in time) of the Oregon community supervision population on the date at the top of the report. This snapshot displays the count of supervised persons for each category in the report for each Oregon county.
These reports contain demographic information for offenders on all types of supervision - probation, prison, post-prison, and local control, across several demographic categories.
This report includes data and a graph of prison population trends over the last 24 months for both males and females.
The Recidivism Dashboard is provided by the Criminal Justice Commission (CJC) and includes information on recidivism rates, time until recidivate, and risk scores to recidivate. The dashboard includes the ability to view data in many ways, including by gender, age, race, region, county, crime category, and years.
The Suicide Prevention report is a compilation of 3 studies. The information gleaned from these studies was used as the main foundation in developing the Automated Suicide Awareness Tool (ASAT). This automated assessment is available on the DOC400 data system to help DOC employees assess an AIC’s risk of suicide.
The following report includes research behind the equations used to develop the ASAT, the Case Review—used for assessment purposes: what questions to ask, what behaviors to watch for, what AIC requests to pay attention to, and what information to know. The third study includes interviews with AICs who have attempted suicide. This report shows all three studies were congruent, and explains the differences found between studies. The report also explains how staff may use an automated risk tool in unison to what they already know.
Note: External Researchers soliciting research using DATA and/or research where in-person data collection methods are not necessary, will be reviewed. All data collection methods involving in-person DOC staff and/or Adults in Custody (AICs) will not be reviewed at this time. DOC institutions are currently closed to outside parties due to the ongoing COVID pandemic.
