How do I register my restraining order in Oregon?

If you decide to register your order, you will need to present a certified copy of the order to a county sheriff. In Oregon, a certified copy will have two stamps and will be signed and dated. 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). The order must be the most recent order in effect between you and the abuser and you must provide proof of service or other written certification that the abuser has been personally served with a copy of the order or has actual notice of the order.1
