The Union Co Jail is a detention center located at 1109 K Ave La Grande, OR which is operated locally by the Union County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Union County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, La Grande Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Oregon here.

The UCCF was opened in 1979 and houses a maximum of 37 inmates. Each year the facility averages 1,200 bookings with prisoners coming from the Union County Sheriff’s Office, La Grande Police Department, Oregon State Police and Union County Community Corrections. In addition, Wallowa County houses its inmates in Union County.

UCCF also has two alternative sentencing programs; House Arrest and Work Crew.

The House Arrest Program requires a person to wear an ankle bracelet that sends out a signal to a monitoring company. The person is allowed certain “out of area” times for such event as going to work, attending school, keeping appointments or doing necessary shopping, Out of area signals that occur outside pre-approved times will result in the person being brought back to jail to complete their sentence. Newer GPS bracelets allow deputies to program exclusion zones. If a person enters one of the exclusion zones the monitoring company is notified and the person will be brought back to jail.

To qualify for the House Arrest Program a person’s sentence order coming from the courts must allow for alternative sentencing. There is a $25 hook-up fee and there is a daily fee that is based on the type of bracelet that is used.

The Work Crew Program is an alternative sentence that is included in a person’s sentence order from the court and is usually in lieu of jail time. The work crew does various jobs including picking up trash, stacking firewood, shoveling snow, building or tearing down fence or clearing brush from roadways.

The Work Crew goes out Sunday-Wednesday. Participants meet on the “L” Street side of the jail near the white van. The fee for the work crew is $10 a day. There is no fee for people sentenced to work crew by Union County Community Corrections. Those on the work crew must bring their own lunch and provide their own clothing suitable for the weather conditions.

People who do not complete their work crew days in the allotted time will be turned back to the courts and a warrant will be issued for their arrest.
