PENDLETON — The Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office is seeking approval for 24-hour nursing care for jail inmates, seven days per week, beginning July 1.

The county board of commissioners considers the request at its meeting Wednesday, Feb. 22. A 24/7 staffing model would help mitigate risk and enhance medical screenings, Capt. Kenny Franks said.
