Professional Visiting

*****UPDATE 5/28/21*****

Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) has devised a new way for you to schedule phone meetings with your in-custody clients.  Beginning June 1st, please utilize the form at: Legal Call Request Form (wufoo.com) to schedule calls for clients. This form allows you to submit your request at any time of the day or night. The request will arrive in an email box shared by multiple DOC Library Coordinators, ensuring a timely response to your requests. It is our sincerest hope that this new method of scheduling will allow DOC to provide you with exemplary customer service.

Professional visitors will need to present credentials and identification when checking in for a visit (i.e., bar card, driver’s license, agency ID, and letter of introduction from employer, etc.). 

  • Attorneys should present their bar card and valid picture ID (driver’s license). 
  • DHS workers should present their agency ID card and driver’s license. 
  • Law clerks should present a driver’s license and letter of introduction from their employer. Letters of introduction may be required at the time of scheduling for law clerks.
Attorneys and representatives from other criminal justice, state or local agencies may be permitted to bring necessary documents or paperwork into the visiting area for exchange with the inmate with prior approval. No more than a ¼” of paper is allowed to be exchanged with an inmate during a legal visit. All articles will be searched for contraband. No other items are permitted to be exchanged with an inmate. 

Professional visitors are expected to follow the same rules as general visitors as outlined in the Rule on Visiting (Inmate)No blue denim or inmate-like attire is allowed to be worn by visitors. For the safety and security of everyone it is recommended that visitors avoid wearing any blue clothing. Please keep all metal to a minimum as the metal detector is sensitive. Underwire undergarments, steel supports in shoes, a large number of metal buttons on an outfit, etc. will set off the metal detector. If your clothing is determined to resemble inmate-like attire or you cannot pass the metal detector, you will not be allowed access into the facility. 

Professional Phone Calls

Legal telephone calls may be scheduled when a professional visit is not possible. Contact the facility’s Transitional Services clerical support to schedule a legal call. Please be prepared with the following information when you call to schedule:

  • Name and SID # of inmate
  • Date and time for call (have an alternate date available as well)
  • Expected duration of call
Please keep in mind that DOC facilities have a limited number of telephones available for legal calls. 

Inmate calls to an attorney whose telephone numbers appear on the legal call list will not be monitored or recorded by the department. The legal call list includes the official telephone numbers of all attorneys registered with the Oregon State Bar Association. Numbers not registered as the official number for an attorney’s office and called on the inmate telephone system are subject to monitoring. 

Legal telephone calls are for legal purposes. Personal business/discussions are not considered legal in nature. Call forwarding, three-way, or conference calls are prohibited. See the Rule on Telephone (Inmate) for more information.

Professional Mail

When sending legal mail to an inmate, only paper documents are authorized. Legal mail received directly from the original source shall be authorized up to three inches thick. To qualify for special processing:
 
  • Legal mail must have affixed to the addressee side of the envelope the words “LEGAL MAIL.” 
  • The words “LEGAL MAIL” should be set apart from both the return address and the mailing address 
  • The words “LEGAL MAIL” should be of sufficient size to permit easy recognition by staff 
Inmates are not authorized to receive CDs in the mail. CDs found in legal mail will be forwarded to the Legal Librarian for processing. Special arrangements can be made with the Superintendent’s Office to drop off large amounts of legal material for an inmate. The materials will be searched for contraband prior to being given to the inmate. Please ensure the inmate’s name and SID # are clearly labeled on the materials. The Rule on Mail (Inmate) does not apply when dropping off large amounts of materials. Staff will use the utmost discretion when searching the materials for contraband.

If you have any questions regarding professional visits/telephone calls/legal mail, please contact the facility.
