Salem, OR Oregon State Correctional Institution View

​Oregon State Correctional Institution (OSCI) is a medium-security facility located three miles east of Salem. OSCI was established by action of the 1955 Legislature and became fully operational June 1, 1959. The 888-bed facility provides housing, treatment, and programming for adults serving sentences for felony convictions from all counties of Oregon including those remanded to adult prison from juvenile facilities. Approximately 350 of the OSCI beds are designated as Transitional Release beds, which increases the demand for transition and release services. OSCI provides rehabilitation opportunities through work, education, and self-improvement programs, and is responsible for preparing AICs for release into the community. OSCI also has a dormitory-style special housing unit for individuals who are medically or physically challenged, but who do not need to be hospitalized or confined in an infirmary. Approximately 300 of the AICs are within one year of release back into the community..
