All visitors will be required to produce a valid form of picture
identification (driver’s license or ID card). The Malheur County Corrections
personnel will keep this identification until the visit is completed. Personnel
are not responsible for identification that is left after visitation periods. If
you have no photo identification, you will not be allowed to visit. No one under
age 18 may visit an inmate, unless accompanied by a family member who is over
Dispatch or corrections personnel may terminate visitation at any time.
Inmates in the Malheur Correctional Facility have access to collect and
prepaid calls (through Telmate) only telephones while in the day room from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Telephone calls are monitored by corrections facility staff and subject to termination at any time. Social calls to inmates are not accepted and messages are not relayed to inmates. People who have received unwanted collect calls from inmates may contact the sheriff’s office at (541) 473-5510 to request a block on their telephone number.

In most cases, inmates will appear in court on the next scheduled day after
being lodged in the Malheur County Correctional Facility, excluding weekends.
Local “in custody” court arraignment times are: Monday through Friday beginning
at 1 p.m.
The release deputy or designee can interview newly lodged inmates, with local
charges, and help with questions regarding release. The deputies cannot help
with legal questions regarding inmates.
Bail is 10 percent of the full security amount listed on the charges. The
court will retain 15 percent, up to $200, of the deposit, for court costs, fines
and restitution. The court may order the deposit forfeited to the State of
Oregon if the inmate violates the conditions of release. For the bail to be
refunded, an application must be made to the court, not the jail. No money will
be refunded until all matters regarding the case(s) are completed in court.
