News Release
Community Corrections Hosting Release Orientation - 10/09/19

On October 21st, 2019, the Community Corrections Division of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office will be doing a presentation for friends and family members of individuals being released from incarceration to be supervised by Marion County. 

This presentation, known as Release Orientation, gives community members an opportunity to ease the fear and anxiety related to the reentry process for both those being released from incarceration and their families.  Presenters will help families and friends to become familiar with healthy ways to support and encourage a loved one in their successful transition back into our community and to establish a positive partnership with our clients’ natural community support through education, knowledge, and communication.  Key topics discussed will include:

  • Parole and Probation Officer Expectations
  • General and Special Conditions of Supervision
  • Victim Reunification
  • Establishing and Maintaining Healthy Boundaries
  • ‘Opening the Door’ for Effective Communication
  • What to Expect During the Transition from Prison into the Community

Each year the Community Corrections Division provides supervision for over 3,100 clients throughout Marion County.  Our Community Corrections Deputies work to have clients engage with a variety of treatment providers and support services in an effort to address crime producing behaviors.  Through the use of evidence based practices and collaboration with community partners, Marion County has experienced a significant reduction in recidivism in the last ten years (37% in 2009 to 20% in 2018).

Release Orientation on October 21st, 2019, will be held from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Marion County Transition Center, 3940 Aumsville Highway SE, Salem.  No preregistration to attend is required.
