This includes: referrals to statewide sexual assault and rape crisis centers; consulting; research; networking; and a lending library.

Victims and survivors who contact the Coalition will be provided with the appropriate information and referrals so that they can find the services and support they need.
Partnership for Safety and Justice unites those most affected by crime, violence, and the criminal justice system (survivors of crime, people convicted of crime, and the families of both) to advance approaches that redirect policies and resources from an over-reliance on incarceration, to effective strategies that reduce violence and recidivism, and increase personal and community safety. The Crime Survivors for Community Safety (CSCS) program is dedicated to building the voice of survivors of crime and violence to promote progressive responses to the needs of survivors , and to support criminal justice reform that reduces future violence without increasing our reliance on prosecution and incarceration. Recent CSCS activities include: a community theatre project to help people practice interrupting violence; the coordination of Oregon providers of services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault into a campaign to raise state funds dedicated to services; education of service providers about the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) and working with survivors who are incarcerated; and monitoring of the Department of Corrections’ implementation of PREA. Partnership for Safety and Justice does not provide direct services for survivors, but welcomes the input of survivors who would like to become more involved in their work.

The Special Investigations Unit provides investigative services to all ODOC institutions and facilities. Special Investigations investigates allegations of inmate, employee, volunteer, and visitor misconduct; assists investigators from local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to gather intelligence and evidence; and provides internal review of situations involving the use of force. Individuals can report abuse, staff misconduct, fraud, waste, and/or inmate prohibited conduct (including sexual assault) by calling the toll-free Inspector General hotline. Hotline calls will not be charged to inmate phone accounts. This number should not be used to complain about routine institution operations. Calls are not anonymous; all messages left on the hotline are reviewed each business day. If the information is credible, follow-up action will occur. These actions may range from a referral to the appropriate superintendent or functional unit manager to an investigation conducted by the Special Investigations Unit. While callers are not required to identify themselves, if they do so, investigators can discreetly contact them. The Inspector General requests that callers leave as much information as possible to aid the investigators.

Lawyer Referral Service clerks refer clients to member attorneys based on location, area of law, and special services offered. When you call for a referral, you will be asked for your name, phone number, and a brief description of your legal problem. Then you will be given the name and phone number of an attorney in the area. If you are referred to an attorney through the Lawyer Referral Service, you will receive the first in-office consultation for $35 or less. Any additional fees must be arranged between the client and attorney. The referral service does not set a limit on the fees attorneys charge beyond the initial consultation.
If you are unsure if you need to speak with an attorney, you may still want to call the service. LRS staff can help you focus on the type of assistance you may need, or give you more information on Oregon State Bar, government, and community service programs that may be able to assist you.
