Colette S. Peters, Director of the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC), recently announced the appointment of Brian Belleque as Deputy Director. Belleque had been serving as Interim Deputy Director since October of last year.

Belleque is a 34-year DOC veteran. He began his career as a Correctional Officer at Oregon State Penitentiary (OSP) in June 1983 after receiving his bachelor's degree in criminology from Southern Oregon State College. He promoted through the security ranks, becoming Lieutenant in 1989 and Captain at Oregon State Correctional Institution (OSCI) in 1994. In 1996, Mr. Belleque was promoted to the Institution Security Manager at OSCI; he later returned to OSP as the Assistant Superintendent of Security, and then became Superintendent in 2003. In 2009, he was awarded the DOC's Amos E. Reed for his work and service to the department. Mr. Belleque served as the Westside Institutions Administrator from 2009 to 2016 prior to taking on the Interim Deputy Director role last October.

"Mr. Belleque's exceptional knowledge, pride, strength, respect, and commitment to protect and serve -- as well as well as his 34 years of experience -- will help carry our agency into the future," said Director Peters. "He cares deeply about our team and is committed to improving the health and wellness of Oregon's corrections professionals who have one of the toughest jobs in public safety."

DOC employs 4,500 staff members at 14 institutions, two community corrections offices, and several centralized support facilities throughout the state. The agency is responsible for the care and custody of over 14,600 adults sentenced to more than 12 months of incarceration, and direct or indirect supervision of 32,000 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.
