LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – Officers from the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Division of Parole and Probation, Southern Command, just finished what the agency calls Operation Gotcha. The three day operation ran from October 31 through November 2.
The goal of this operation was to confirm that offenders under Lifetime Supervision were in compliance with residential registration and to provide them with amended Lifetime Supervision conditions.
