OSP Ontario Office Move Saves Money; General Business Functions Closed May 14 - 16
05/10/2012
Lieutenant Richard Pileggi
Oregon State Police - Ontario
(541) 889-6469

The Oregon State Police (OSP) Ontario Area Command office will be closed May 14 - 16 to accommodate a move from its former location to a newly remodeled facility west of Ontario. During that time, general business operations including sex offender registrations will temporarily be unavailable. OSP field operations won't be affected during the office move.
 
In 2011, OSP started working with Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to plan for the remodel of an existing ODOT building located off Interstate 84 at exit 371 about five miles west of Ontario. OSP estimates saving approximately $100,000 annually in rental costs at the new facility.
 
Located north of Interstate 84 with easier public access and quicker trooper response to the freeway and Highway 201, the office has nearly the same amount of square footage as the former location but with a larger space for troopers to do required work in the office. The new facility accommodates OSP operations for Patrol, Criminal Investigation, Fish & Wildlife, State Fire Marshal, and East Region Collision Reconstruction at:
 
541 Stanton Boulevard Bldg. #1
Ontario, Oregon 97914

 
During the temporary closure, OSP Southern Command Center dispatch can be contacted for needed OSP response at (541) 889-6468. All individuals required to complete annual and updated sex offender registrations should make alternate plans to contact their local police agency to ensure compliance with registration requirements.
 
When general business operations resume May 17, the phone number (541-889-6469) will not change. The office will be open for general business Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sex offender registration can be completed Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
 
Twenty employees, including 18 sworn staff of supervisors and troopers, work out of the OSP Ontario Area Command office. This office is also responsible to supervise OSP operations for work sites in Burns and John Day. In total, the Ontario office and two work sites are responsible to provide state law enforcement services for roughly 1/5 of the State of Oregon to include Malheur County (9,930 square miles), Harney County (10,228 square miles), and Grant County (4,528 square miles).
