Transition From VINELink to a New and Improved System, VISOR. 

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) is changing the way automated notifications are made about adults in custody. As of October 30th, 2023, the state of Oregon will transition to a new system, VISOR (Victim Information System in Oregon). Once the transition is complete, registrants notification will be provided by VISOR, and will no longer come from VINE. VISOR will provide a substantially more modern, user-friendly, timely, and efficient solution at a significantly reduced cost. The VINE and VISOR systems have been running simultaneously to ensure the new system is functioning properly and notifications are made. Current VINE registrants will automatically be transferred to VISOR. Registrants do not need to take any action at this time. For more information on the transition, click here or email

Crime Victims’ Rights

An amendment to the Oregon state constitution guarantees the victim the right to be reasonably protected from the defendant. This amendment:

  • Requires the judge to make decisions about pre-trial release on the principle of reasonable protection of the victim and the public. 
  • Ensures crimes defined as violent felonies will not allow bail if the court finds probable cause to believe the defendant committed the crime, and the court finds danger of physical injury to the victim or public.
  • Prevents a judge or parole board from allowing a defendant to be released before serving their full sentence.
  • Requires jury composition be made up of registered voters who haven’t been convicted of a felony, or served a sentence for a felony, within the last 15 years.
