Head of Division of Parole and Probation retiring

CARSON CITY — Bernie Curtis, chief of the state Division of Parole and Probation, is retiring after six years on the job.

His retirement is effective Monday.

Curtis’ career in law enforcement dates to 1968 in California and Nevada. The division has 448 employees and is responsible for writing pre-sentencing reports and overseeing people placed on probation or parole.

The division was criticized recently for failure to deliver pre-sentencing reports in a timely manner to District Court judges in Clark County. This caused a backup in the jail of inmates waiting to appear for sentencing.

No replacement was named immediately for the job, which has an annual salary of $123,783.
