The Special Programs and Services Bureau, in the Corrections Division of the Henderson Police Department, was created at the Henderson City Council Meeting on March 7, 2017 in a resolution that dissolved the existing Alternative Sentencing Department. The Henderson Police Department officially began oversight of the operations on March 13, 2017.
Special Programs and Services serves as a probation department for those offenders that are supervised releases or sentenced by the Henderson Municipal Court to be under some type of supervision for a period of time. The requirements for this supervision varies from probationer to probationer, but is all indicated in their court order. The department’s legal authority comes from Nevada Revised Statute 211A. The Captain of the Corrections Division is the Division Commander, and a Corrections Lieutenant is assigned as the Bureau Commander.
Special Programs and Services offers many programs and classes for those that are on probation to address the orders provided by the Henderson Municipal Court, and the staff guides the probationers on how to maintain their compliance with their orders. Officers assigned to the bureau are responsible for arresting probationers who continually fail to comply with the conditions on their sentencing orders. The Work Program allows offenders to work off the fines that are required by the Henderson Municipal Court while also providing a service to the City of Henderson.
The overall goal of Special Programs and Services is to provide an opportunity for misdemeanor offenders to address their sentences through means other than incarceration as long as they remain compliant with their conditions. By doing this, we hope to provide a return of this investment to the community by decreasing recidivism and increasing public safety through the utilization of programs and supervision that target the underlying cause(s) of their criminal activity.
