OYA Recidivism

OYA's Research and Evaluation Unit compiles and analyzes data on recidivism rates of various cohorts of OYA youth.

Tracking recidivism supports the OYA’s mission by measuring the extent to which agency services have been able to protect the public. In addition, reporting the recidivism measure reflects the agency’s values of excellence in public service, openness, and accountability to the public.

Senate Bill 267 - Evidence-Based Practices

In 2004 legislation was drafted to mandate the use of evidence-based practices for youths and adults at risk of involvement in the criminal justice and correctional systems. 
The Oregon state Senate Bill 267, which later was enacted into state law (ORS 185.515-525), proposed that state-funded programs use treatment practices shown by research to have an impact on reducing the risk to recidivate and/or decrease the likelihood that persons will be hospitalized for mental health crises. This state mandate applies to the Department of Corrections, Oregon Youth Authority, State Commission on Children and Families, and the Office of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS).
