Harney County Community Corrections is responsible for supervising adult criminal offenders sentenced to supervised probation by the Court or released to post-prison supervision from a correctional facility who reside in Harney County. Currently, we supervise approximately 70 offenders. We focus on public safety by holding offenders accountable for their behavior and working with them to make positive changes in their lives. We strive to reduce recidivism through a balance of supervision, services, and sanctions. Offenders are referred to necessary treatment including mental health and/or substance abuse treatment. Some of the sanctions used include electronic monitoring (GPS or SCRAM), community service work crews, day reporting, intensive supervision, and jail.
Harney County Community Corrections also monitors some pre-trial releases and offenders who were able to be placed on electronic monitoring in lieu of a jail sentence. A parole and probation officer is active in our two specialty courts: Drug Court and Reentry Court.
All supervised offenders have what is referred to as general conditions of supervision. Offenders may also have special conditions set by the Court or Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision.
