    As a small law enforcement agency, we're more of a family than just co-workers and colleagues. We hold ourselves to a high standard of ethics and professionalism. If you're looking for an exciting career that challenges you, you should consider applying to join the department in one of several job opportunities (as openings become available). Also as a smaller department, you could enjoy the many benefits of "small town living."

    If you're not familiar with the area, or are from out of town, La Grande is a scenic community of 13,000 located in the Grande Ronde Valley of northeastern Oregon. La Grande is 260 miles east of Portland and 170 miles west of Boise, Idaho with Interstate 84 running east and west through it. The Blue Mountains are immediately to the west and the Wallowa Mountains form the backdrop to the east. La Grande features four-seasons and offers diverse activities for everyone. For the outdoor enthusiast, recreation is just one step away. Hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, golf, and much more awaits you.
