Clark County District Court Probation

The Probation department operates under the direction of Clark County District Court to provide court-ordered supervision, investigations and classes. In partnership with government and community agencies, Probation promotes community safety through the use of evidence-based practices and appropriate interventions while working with offenders to encourage good social behavior and reduce recidivism.

Research–based tools/methods include:

  • Pre-trial risk assessment and investigation
  • Post-conviction risk/needs assessments targeting higher risk offenders and behaviors that result in criminal behavior
  • Gender-responsive supervision
  • Case planning
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Cognitive behavioral classes
  • Supervision in District Court’s therapeutic, problem-solving courts

Programs:

  • Pre-trial release and supervision staff investigate arrested individuals and provide information to the courts for a determination on release and financial eligibility for the appointment of counsel. Staff supervise defendants who are released by District and Superior courts pending adjudication.
  • Supervised probation participants are required to report in person regularly to their assigned probation officer and comply with all court-ordered conditions.
  • Bench probation and deferred prosecution participants must comply with all court-ordered conditions but are not required to report in person regularly.
  • Restitution staff investigate and establish damages and/or loss of property for victims of crime.
  • Classes staff instruct/facilitate evidence-based classes.

Probation fees:

Offenders may be ordered by the court to pay a fee for probation services. Probation fees are added to the fine/fees associated to the case(s) in District Court. Probation fees are paid thru District Court.
