Sex Offender Supervision

Sex offender supervision and community notification is a critical component to the Lincoln County Parole & Probation Department's mission of public safety.

A total of approximately 70 sex offenders are currently under supervision in Lincoln County. These offenders have been convicted of a variety of sex offenses and represent varying levels of risk to the community.

  • Community Notification: Based upon the level of risk determined through use of a validated risk assessment, some of these offenders are subject to the legal requirements of Community Notification.

  • Statewide Registration: All offenders who have committed crimes listed in ORS 181.594 are subject to mandatory statewide registration.
  • Formal Probation: Although many sex offenders are sent to prison as a result of their conviction, some offenders are placed directly on formal probation and those in prison will ultimately return to the community under parole or post-prison supervision.
