OAR 291-204-0080
Access by Unaffiliated Persons


Unaffiliated persons may request a tour of a facility in accordance with the Department’s rules on Tours (OAR 291-009).


Requests to interview designated inmates made by unaffiliated persons will not be permitted. Unaffiliated persons may contact an inmate by mail, receive telephone calls from an inmate, or be placed on the inmate’s visiting list as provided in Writing, Telephoning and Visiting an Inmate (OAR 291-204-0040 (Writing, Telephoning and Visiting an Inmate)).


In extraordinary circumstances the Department may, in its sole discretion, grant unaffiliated persons access to DOC facilities and programs for a specific project when, in the judgment of the Department, the requested access will substantially further the interests of the State of Oregon or the Department’s mission and goals; is consistent with the safe, secure and orderly management and operation of the facility; and is not inconsistent with inmates’ correctional planning and rehabilitation.
