Harney County Sheriff's Office

Historic Proposed County Jail Drawing.HISTROY OF THE JAIL

In 1962, Harney County and the City of Burns entered into a contract to construct and operate the Harney County Jail. The jail employed two people, who were a husband-and-wife team.

The couple lived at the facility and supervised the inmates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Their living quarters were what is now the Harney County Sheriff’s Office and the 911 Dispatch Center.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATES

SENATE BILL 48

The Chief Justice’s guidelines provide that persons charged with more serious offenses – including violent felonies, sex crimes, and domestic violence felonies or misdemeanors – as well as offenses that indicate a person may not comply with court imposed conditions of release, be held for arraignment, first appearance, or a release decision by a judge. A risk-based approach, including consideration of offender-based criteria in addition to offense-based guidelines, helps ensure community and victim safety. The guidelines also encourage courts to establish or expand the use of pretrial assessments to inform decision-making.  Each presiding judge of a circuit court is required to enter a standing pretrial release order that complies with the Chief Justice’s guidelines.

JAIL NEWS

Effective October 30, 2023 the State of Oregon transitioned to a new service providers for victim notification. The State of Oregon recognized some outdated technology and discovered complications with data exchange with the local county,  jail management systems.

According to a brief issued by the Oregon Department of Corrections, improvements to
victim notification through Visor will be accomplished in at least the five following ways:

1.     Real-time data exchange will enable real-time notifications allowing DOC to              provide more value, safety, and peace of mind to end-users.

2.    VISOR’s modern user-interface will be easier to navigate. Registrants will have the ability to manage their notifications, make changes themselves, and locate information more naturally.

3.    Registrant data will be more secure by being stored and maintained in-house and unavailable for use by other information distribution networks.

4.    Modern architecture and the potential for self-hosted solutions provide flexibility for enhancements and modifications if changes are required from the legislature or end-users in the future.

5.    Notification scripts to registrants can be immediately updated and delivered in the event of emergencies, such as natural disasters, without delay.

VISOR will provide a substantially more modern, user-friendly, timely, and efficient solution to endusers at a significantly reduced cost. This aligns with the Governor’s and the State’s guidelines to reduce government financial spending and replace or modernize outdated technology.

The State of Oregon will no longer be utilizing the progam, Vine Link. The new service provider, VISOR, is linked below for easy access to register for victim notifications.
