Union/Wallowa County Community Corrections Program

Union/Wallowa Counties has acknowledged that the first 60 days after release are important to success for offenders. Emphasis is placed on housing, treatment and employment/education, which have been found to be the factors that, when addressed, lead to successful reintegration into the community. All of the Parole/Probation Officers supervise offenders released to the community. The Department has a satellite office in Wallowa County where a PO works approximately one and one-half days per week and the remainder of the week in the La Grande office. All other staff are located in the La Grande office. Our goal is to reduce recidivism by being proactive and addressing the needs of the offender while still incarcerated. An individual program for the offender is then developed within the community. Community partners provide a holistic approach by providing resources for the offender such as mentoring, mental health/substance abuse treatment, life skills, transitional housing, job search skills and GED preparation.

Reach-In Program

The reach-ins are done telephonically by the Parole Officer approximately 30 to 60 days prior to release. At that time the inmate is given an opportunity to address any concerns. The Parole Officer can then begin to develop programming to be implemented upon release for the offender.
