Oregon Department of Corrections reports in-custody death (Photo) - 09/14/23

An Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) adult in custody, Arly L. Phillips, passed away the evening of September 9, 2023, while on hospice care. 

Phillips entered DOC custody on April 24, 1986, from Lane County and was serving a life sentence. Phillips was 71 years old. Next of kin has been notified.

DOC takes all in-custody deaths seriously. The agency is responsible for the care and custody of approximately 12,000 men and women who are incarcerated in 12 institutions across the state. While crime information is public record, DOC elects to disclose only upon request out of respect for any family or victims.

DOC employs 4,500 staff members at 12 institutions, two community corrections offices, and several centralized support facilities throughout the state. The agency is responsible for the care and custody of over 12,000 adults sentenced to more than 12 months of incarceration, and direct or indirect supervision of 31,000 offenders on felony supervision in the community. DOC is recognized nationally among correctional agencies for providing adults in custody with the cognitive, education, and job skills needed to become productive citizens when they transition back to their communities.
