Persons sentenced to probation report immediately after court to the Community Corrections Department for an intake appointment. If required to serve jail time first, a probationer should report immediately after release, or on Monday at 8am if released on a weekend. Most people will meet with a Probation Officer for an intake appointment on the first day they report. Others, depending on the type of conviction, will be scheduled for intake with the appropriate supervising officer with a date to follow. Those who live out of state are seen the same day or the following day. An intake lasts approximately an hour and includes a review of the general conditions of probation and the laws about gun ownership and possession. In some instances, it also includes an assessment of treatment needs. If one is being transferred to another county, he/she is given reporting instructions for that county.
If it becomes necessary to reschedule an intake appointment, one should call the Department’s main number (541-276-7824) for a new appointment.
All persons on supervision with Community Corrections are charged a monthly supervision fee. This amount in Umatilla County is $35.00 per month. Other fees that are charged include; Electronic Surveillance, Community Service Intake Fee, Substance Abuse Assessment Fee, Sex Offender evaluations, Sex Offender Polygraphs, Sex Offender Group Fee and Transitional Housing rent and fees associated with case transfers. This list may change due to contractual changes, or development of new programs.

All states must abide by the Interstate Compact Agreement. This is a set of laws that details when, and under what circumstances, a person may transfer supervision to another state. All felony and some misdemeanor convictions are subject to this agreement. If it applies to your case, you’re Probation and Parole Officer will assist you with an application. The receiving state will review the application and investigate your proposed residence to determine if it is appropriate. It can take a month or longer for a decision, so be sure to plan ahead if you are considering a move. There is a $100 Community Corrections Fee and a $50 Interstate Compact application fee. If you are residing in a state other than Oregon and are not currently under supervision, although are in the Court process and will ultimately be placed on supervision, please discuss this with your attorney prior to any Change of Plea hearings or Trial Dates. Although Community Corrections will work as hard as we can, in order to allow for your return home as quickly as possible, at times a delay of days and even weeks can occur depending on the crime of conviction. In these particular types of Interstate Compact Requests, Community Corrections WILL NOT charge the $100.00 Community Corrections Fee, although the State fee of $50.00 is required before Community Corrections can request your transfer. Make sure when you report, that you have all appropriate identification, proof of residence, address and phone number of your residence and any other documentation that will prove your residence and employment in your home state. Again, please work on this prior to conviction with your attorney, or call this office for help PRIOR to your conviction date.
