Department operates under the supervision of Alternative Sentencing Chief Ian Massy.
Chief Massy was appointed by the Henderson City Council on August 5, 2014 after
serving as the Acting Chief. The primary objective of
the Department is to promote victim and public safety by holding probationers
accountable while providing them with the opportunity for rehabilitation through
accessible, quality, probationer–funded programs.
The Department was formed through a reorganization effort led by Mark Jacobs that included staff members from the City Attorney’s office and the Municipal Court. The Department is comprised of four separate units: the Programs Unit, Enforcement Unit, Assessment/Counseling Unit and Work Program / Community Service Unit. Each unit has different responsibilities, but work in unison to accomplish the Department's objectives.
