Northern Nevada Repeat Offender Program – ROP

The Northern Nevada Repeat Offender Program (ROP) focuses on repeat offenders with extensive criminal history. These offenders have repetitively displayed criminal behavior and have a high likelihood of reoffending.  ROP monitors these offenders through surveillance and other investigative techniques. ROP detectives are actively involved in all criminal proceedings involving ROP offenders and work closely with a special team of Deputy District Attorneys. The Repeat Offender Program is currently supervised by a Sparks Police Sergeant and is comprised of Detectives from the Sparks Police Department, Reno Police Department, Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, and Department of Public Safety Parole and Probation.
