SEARCH AND RESCUE EFFORTS IN GRANT COUNTY

Grant County, being relatively remote and rural, depends on a list of volunteers who provide service by and through the Sheriff's agency. Search and Rescue is augmented by the Grant County Air Search Group and the Grand County Snowballers Snowmobile Club provide wintertime SAR.

Search and Rescue members are trained and equipped to assist when the needs arise. Reserve Patrol staff, who are also volunteers, assist by serving civil process, taking calls for service, investigating and assisting in full-time patrol staff and search upon the order of the Sheriff.

PLEASE PROVIDE US WITH ANY INFORMATION YOU MAY HAVE TO ASSIST IN AN ACTIVE SEARCH OPERATION
The Grant County Jail is located in Canyon City, Oregon, which is our County seat.

The jail is a relatively newer facility built in 1997 and has a capacity of 41 hard beds and the option for up to 7 temporary beds. Our daily inmate population rarely exceeds twenty inmates on average.

Inmates of this facility have the ability to have visitors by appointment, can make contact by and through written communications through the US Mail and also have the ability to make collect phone calls or with prepaid phone cards purchased here at the Sheriff's office. The facility has a commissary where items can be purchased with a nominal markup in price. The commissary is what keeps inmate programs and recreation going. There is an indoor and outdoor recreation opportunity. This includes activities such as weights, basket ball, ping pong, library and television. These services are not funded with tax payer dollars. Money can be mailed or brought to the facility and put on an inmates account.

Inmates can be bailed by posting cash through our jail staff
