The Position
Parole & Probation Specialists perform technical duties in administrative functions and units, which do not require peace officer status. Duties include casework services, investigations, tracking and monitoring assigned parolees and probationers, pre-sentence investigations, determination of restitution and supervision fees, and referral services for the assigned unit. Positions in this series obtain and verify information; prepare and process case files and recommend appropriate action; and monitor offender activities. Incumbents are not Peace Officer's Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) certified and do not perform law enforcement functions such as conducting field inspections of offenders' worksite or residence, conducting surveillance, searches and arrests, or transporting prisoners to court or detention facilities.
The Parole and Probation Division (NPP) is recruiting to fill multiple Parole and Probation Specialist III positions in Reno. Parole & Probation Specialist IIIs may conduct Presentence Investigations and prepare legal reports for the Court Services Unit; serve as a lead worker to other specialists in the Interstate Compact, Pre-Release, or Fugitive Apprehension Units; or work embedded within the Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC) facilities performing re-entry and pre-release duties. This recruitment is for all listed assignments and candidates will be notified of the specific assignment(s) available at the time of interview offer. Specialists in the Court Services Unit represent the Division in District Court proceedings; interact with Court personnel, victims, and offenders, both in and out of custody; and adhere to short deadlines mandated by Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS).
A successful candidate will possess strong investigative, interview, and computer skills, the ability to summarize information from an array of legal documents, above average writing skills, and strong organizational and prioritization skills. Courtroom testimony experience is desirable, but is not a requirement. Specialists embedded in NDOC facilities will have daily interaction with inmates to formulate release plans and communicate with an inmate's family, sponsors, and residential program providers to establish viable plans and coordinate pre-parole investigations. Incumbents also work with correctional staff to schedule pre-release meetings, provide assistance and/or refer inmates to appropriate community programs, counselors, and other resources. Pre-hire screening for controlled substances is required for all Specialists embedded in NDOC facilities. Candidates must be willing to accept their assigned work location and inherent requirements for entry into a correctional facility as a condition of continued employment. Specialists assigned to the Fugitive Apprehension unit monitor and prioritize offender extraditions and the extradition budget. Specialists assigned to the Pre-Release unit act as liaisons between NDOC and NPP. Strong organizational and prioritization skills are required. The State of Nevada is committed to Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action in recruitment of its employees and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion or belief, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, domestic partnership, genetic information (GINA), or compensation and/or wages. ***THIS RECRUITMENT MAY CLOSE AT ANY TIME DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS RECEIVED.
