Professional Biography:
Ian G. Massy was named Chief of the Alternative Sentencing Department in July 2014. The Alternative Sentencing Department is responsible for enhancing victim and public safety by promoting probationer accountability and providing the opportunity for probationer rehabilitation through accessible and quality offender-funded programs. The department supervises probationers and individuals released pre-trial with court-ordered conditions. It also investigates violations of Henderson Municipal Court orders.
