Community Justice: Adult Services: Probation & Parole Supervision

Retention schedules for Probation & Parole Supervision and Treatment Services

Probation & Parole Program Description

This program collaborates with community organizations, law enforcement agencies, and other criminal justice partners to monitor justice-involved individuals’ behavior. Working through field offices, parole and probation officers provide close monitoring of high- and medium-risk individuals, specialized services for individuals, intermediate sanctions, and education and dialog with community groups. There are specialized parole and probation offices for sex offenders, gangs, and mentally ill individuals.

Electronic Information Systems

In addition to using other jurisdictions’ systems (notably LEDS, CIS, and the City of Portland’s Police system), the program relies on the Supervision Program Information Network (SPIN) and its Flex Reporting subsystem and the Supervision Fee (FIRS) system. These systems provide justice-involved individual demographic data, program participation, case plans, needs and risks assessments, and supervision fee payment scheduling and accounting. They also provide operational reporting and justice involved individual tracking. Individual tracking information that is not duplicated in other records series should be maintained for 3 years (MOAR 166-150-0025(2). Statistical reporting that is not duplicated in other records series should be maintained for 10 years (see ASD11-006). Supervision fee accounting information that is not duplicated in other records series should be maintained for 3 years (see ASD11-007). Other information that is not duplicated in other records series supporting case management should be maintained until the case is closed. At that time, any unique records should be printed and transferred to the appropriate justice involved individual’s case file.

Series Descriptions

Note: Department of Corrections Information Systems Division maintains statewide record copy of information on the Corrections Information System. As stated in OAR 291-070-080(1) DOC requires certain documents to be transferred to DOC Central Records, as they are created, for maintenance as statewide record copy.
