How do I register my restraining order in Oregon?

If you decide to register your order with the court system, you or someone acting on your behalf will need to file a certified copy of the order and proof of service with the clerk in any circuit court of any county in Oregon.1

To have the order entered into the law enforcement database, you could also present a certified copy to a county sheriff. After confirming that the abuser has been personally served with a copy of the order or has actual notice of the order, the sheriff will then enter your order into the Law Enforcement Data System, which is maintained by the Department of State Police and the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).2
