Oregon Statutes - Chapter 137 - Judgment and Execution; Parole and Probation by the Court - Section 137.592 - Policy regarding probation violations.

The Legislative Assembly finds that:

(1) To protect the public, the criminal justice system must compel compliance with the conditions of probation by responding to violations with swift, certain and fair punishments.

(2) Decisions to incarcerate offenders in state prisons for violation of the conditions of probation must be made upon a reasonably systematic basis that will insure that available prison space is used to house those offenders who constitute a serious threat to the public, taking into consideration the availability of both prison space and local resources. [1993 c.680 §8]

Note: 137.592 to 137.599 were enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but were not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 137 or any series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
