Release NotificationsSign up with the Oregon Parole Board
VINE is an automated notification system. For example, VINE will call, text, and/or email you if there is a change in custody status. This includes when an inmate is released from prison or is moved between prisons.
The Oregon Parole Board can notify you at least 90 days prior to an inmate's release and help you get a No Contact order added to an inmate's conditions of Post-Prison Supervision.
Frequently Asked Questions+ How might the earliest release date change?
Earliest Release Date is not firm until closer to release. It gets updated periodically by counselors. The closer to release, the more predictable this date becomes.
What does Earliest Release Date include?
Earliest Release Date includes the sentence minus 20% Earned Time.
What is Earned Time?
Earned Time is 20% credited at the beginning of the sentence. Earned time can be lost due to infractions and counselors update earned time periodically.
What are some other programs that may move the date earlier than that?
Short Term Transitional Leave can subtract up to 120 days in addition to earned time for certain offenders. To learn more visit the DOC FAQs.
Are there other programs that may allow the offender to spend time in the community?
There are Alternative Incarceration Programs available in three institutions in Oregon that allow a small number of offenders to undergo treatment in the community. If they graduate these programs successfully they will be released earlier in addition to earned time.
