Oregon State Police Missing Persons Program

The Oregon State Police provides law enforcement personnel and families of missing persons the tools to actively and successfully search for missing Oregonians. Our Medical Examiner system and Missing Persons Clearinghouse is partnered with the Oregon State Police Forensic Services DNA Unit to supply leads from DNA analysis, performed at no cost to law enforcement agencies or families of missing persons.  DNA analysis and comparison to database profiles is confidential and restricted to identifying missing persons only.  DNA profiles of family members will be removed promptly and permanently if a match is found.​ 


Oregon Regional Forensic Academies​
Oregon Regional Forensic Academies are held in various locations across Oregon each year. These classes provide training to local law enforcement in the identification, collection and preservation of evidence. They are designed for new investigators or as refreshers to more experienced officers.
