Lt. Steve Smartt named La Grande Area commander

Beginning July 1, the La Grande office of the Oregon State Police will have a new commander.

Lt. Steve Smartt, 52, takes over as La Grande's area commander following the retirement of Lt. Gordon Larson.

Smartt comes from the Coos Bay Area Command office where he worked his way through the ranks from trooper to lieutenant, a position he held since an October 2003 promotion. Smartt began his carreer with the OSP in 1990, working three years as a criminalist in the OSP Forensic Services Division before transferring to the Patrol Services Division in 1993. Before being promoted into supervisory positions, he worked at the Coos Bay office as a patrol trooper and Drug Enforcement Section detective.

The La Grande Area Command oversee patrol, fish and wildlife, and criminal division operations at three office supporting public safety services in Union, Baker and Wallowa counties. The offices have a total 37 sworn officers and five non-sworn officers.

Patrol troopers out of the La Grande office are responsible for patrolling 168 miles of state and interstate highway while troopers out of Baker City patrol 267 miles of highway. Enterprise troopers patrol 120 miles of highways. Fish and wildlife troopers ensure compliance with the laws and regulation that protect and enhance fish and wildlife resources and habitats within 2,000 square miles of Union County, 3,000 square miles of Baker County and 3,100 square miles of Wallowa County. Detectives support local law enforcement with major criminal investigations and on interagency teams. They also provide primary criminal investigative services on state property and at state institututions.
