LOVELOCK, WINNEMUCCA, BATTLE MOUNTAIN, ELKO, ELY, TONOPAH, RENO, SPARKS:

Nevada Department of Public Safety, Division of Parole and Probation along with Detectives with the Investigation Division conducted a two day weekend operation on January 26 and 27, 2013.  The mission of the two operations was to conduct surveillance and home contacts on supervised sex offenders residing in Washoe County and rural counties in Northern Nevada in an effort to increase the level of public safety. The Division Received funding for the operation through a United States Department of Justice COPS grant.

The Division of Parole and Probation is tasked with monitoring sex offenders in the community who are currently being supervised for terms of parole, probation and lifetime supervision. The majority of these cases have special conditions that impose restrictions on the offender. By conducting special operations, the Division of Parole and Probation enhances its ability to enforce rules/special conditions placed on sex offenders after hours and over the weekend.

At the conclusion of Operation Reveille and Solace-2, the Division of Parole and Probation assisted by the Division of Investigations conducted 172 sex offender contacts, 89 collateral contacts, 25 surveillances, 65 drug tests, 2 field contacts, and 2 employment verifications.  Additionally, several computers and phones were confiscated and booked into evidence for further investigation. Three sex offenders were arrested for violating the terms of their supervision. 

Operation Reveille and Solace-2 were deemed a success and showed that the majority of sex offenders were in compliance with their special conditions. The increased officer presence during the weekend allowed for increased home contacts as well as more in depth home searches. Furthermore, the officers' presence on the weekend may serve to deter future violations.
