About Nevada Department of Corrections

The Nevada Department of Corrections utilizes its correctional centers and innovative programming to protect society by incarcerating and rehabilitating offenders. The department achieves this by using the various divisions and facilities under its mandate. Nevada DOC operates eight conservation camps, seven correctional facilities, and two transitional housing facilities. In the facilities, the inmates go through various programs like correctional programs, re-entry programs, and substance abuse programs. 

The United States Department of Justice, together with the Office of Justice Programs, funds the Nevada Statewide Recidivism Reduction Strategic Plan. This plan aims at empowering incarcerated individuals to transition to society through re-entry programs, public safety strategies, and personal improvement. Additionally, the Family Services Division plays a role in the successful reintegration of inmates into the community.  

To keep up with the digital trend and improve its service delivery, NDOC has a Management Information System. MIS keeps the department updated by replacing older equipment with newer ones and automating the department's operations. NDOC mandates MIS to provide technical support and improve the communication system by implementing email and intranet systems. Additionally, the department will have staff development and training to equip all the divisions' staff with technology skills. 

The Division of Parole and Probation 

The Division of Probation and Parole aims at protecting Nevada's public members and reducing criminal activities. To accomplish this, the Division uses two strategies: 

This Division has ten offices across the state, with its headquarters in the Administration and Specialized Units in Carson City. Further, the Division has two regional areas- the Southern and the Northern Command. Annually, the Division collects more than $2 million in restitution from offenders and disburses the funds to the victims of crime. More so, it gathers over $2 million in supervision fees from offenders, reducing the supervision costs and reducing Nevada citizens' burden.  

The Division supervises about 19,000 offenders comprising of the following: 

  1. Defendants who the District Courts have placed on probation for a conviction of a gross misdemeanor or felony  
  2. Inmates released from correctional facilities on parole by the Parole Board  
  3. Inmates who the Department of Corrections has approved for transitional community programs  
  4. Offenders transferred into the state under the Adult Interstate Compact Agreement 

After the respective authorities place individuals into parole or probation, the Division of Parole and Probation classifies them according to their risk. The Division places High-risk offenders under the Intensive Supervision Program (ISU), which requires total compliance with all probation/parole guidelines. ISU subjects the offenders to the following: 

Residential Confinement 

The Parole and Probation board also uses residential confinement (house arrest) as an alternative to incarceration. House arrest applies to inmates, probationers, and parolees. Offenders under residential confinement may be required to wear an electronic ankle monitor and gadget to measure the alcohol content of their bodies. Under house arrest, the Division offers the following programs: 

The Medical Division 

The Nevada DOC Medical Division is responsible for providing health care services to inmates serving in the Nevada correctional centers. Inmates receive a wide range of medical services similar to those in the outside community. The Medical Division addresses major and minor health issues, acute illnesses, injuries, chronic diseases, and preventive health care.  

Each main correctional facility has an infirmary and a medical and dental clinic with certified medical officers to provide the services. Averagely, the medical clinics across the state serve about 600 inmates every day. Besides offering primary care at correctional facilities, the Division holds period on-site clinics with outside specialists such as surgeons and cardiologists. More so, inmates can be hospitalized in community hospitals when the need arises. 

Nevada DOC Correctional Programs  

NDOC offers inmates a wide array of programs to educate, rehabilitate, and provide work skills that enable incarcerated individuals to become better community members. In the correctional centers, there are core correctional programs and optional correctional programs. 

Core Correctional Programs  

The core correctional programs are for all incarcerated individuals in correctional facilities across the state. The programs consist of: 

Optional Correctional Programs  

All inmates have their own needs, likes, and preferences concerning rehabilitation, education, and work. In this regard, the Nevada DOC provides the following optional correctional programs to suit each individual's needs:  

The Victims Service Unit  

The Victims Service Unit (VSU) provides information, support, and referral services to victims of inmates under the custody of NDOC. VSU provides the victims with all the benefits and rights outlined in Marsy’s Law of Nevada. Nevada DOC, through VSU, offers the following services to crime victims and their loved ones, threatened parties, or concerned citizens: 

For victims to receive notifications, they must register with the Victims Service Unit. To register, download the Victim Notification Request form, fill and submit it. A registered victim can expect to receive the following notifications: 

Nevada Inmate Information  

Public members can find general information about incarcerated individuals via the Nevada DOC offender locator. However, if you need specific information about an offender, like their location, classification, and status, you should call the correctional facility housing the inmate. If the inmate's location is unknown or unclear whether the offender is in prison or not, contact the Department’s Family and Community Services. 

The Nevada DOC only stores offenders' information housed in a Nevada State Prison and are currently serving their sentence. Currently, the department does not have information on probationers, parolees, or convicts awaiting trial or sentencing. Contact the city or county where authorities apprehended the individual to find information about someone arrested but has not received a sentence. 

 You can obtain information on approval of inmates' release or the date of their release on parole from the Division of Parole and Probation's pre-release unit. Additionally, the Division provides information on individuals currently on parole and probation. On the other hand, the Parole Board provides data concerning the inmate's hearing for parole, including the date and venue of the hearing.
