Community corrections director to be reinstated

Probation, community corrections to again be independent departments



“Learn from the events of June 28, 2013, and the events disclosed thereafter, particularly improving your communication and interpersonal skills,” the letter states. “Good communication skills are expected of good managers.” 

Mason and Ford had clashed over the hours of a community corrections employee who claimed hours on his time sheet that Mason said the employee did not work. 

Moore said the findings of the investigation conducted by the committee will be forwarded to the Clark County Prosecutor’s Office, but did not offer an opinion when asked if there had been any criminal wrongdoing on the part of the employee. 

In addition to working to improve his relationship with other departments in the criminal justice system, the letter also recommends that Mason schedule each of his staff members for professional-development and diversity training “very soon,” that Mason modernize the community corrections department’s “comp time” policy and that Mason and Work Release Director Danielle Grissett arrange so that at least one of the two is on call at all times. 

The committee recommended that Mason’s performance be reviewed within six months to ensure that progress is being made.
