About Us

Community Corrections is responsible for the supervision of convicted adult justice involved individuals (JIIs) whom the courts and parole board have placed in the community under a limited, structured state of freedom. The overall goal is to protect the community by helping JIIs become law-abiding, contributing citizens.

Community Corrections in Oregon is a function of state government operated in partnership with local, county-operated community corrections agencies. Of Oregon’s 36 counties, the Department of Corrections (DOC) operates Community Corrections in Linn and Douglas counties. Community Corrections activities include supervision, community-based sanctions, and services directed at JIIs who have committed felony and certain misdemeanor crimes and have been placed under community supervision by the courts.

Community Corrections can be used as an alternative or enhancement to incarceration. Based on many different factors, some JIIs are given a community-based sentence, without having to serve time in a correctional facility; this is commonly known as probation. Other JIIs are sentenced to serve a predetermined number of months in a correctional facility before beginning a community-based sentence – known as either parole or post-prison supervision, depending on crime commission date. There are approximately 30,000 offenders under supervision in Oregon communities and 14,000 offenders serving time in one of Oregon’s 14 prisons.
