The Nevada Department of Corrections is striving to create a new, more open environment for the public, while also providing more effective services. In an effort to accomplish these goals, NDOC has created a Family Services Division designed to address concerns of inmates and their families.

The Division is supervised by the Director of the Nevada Department of Corrections and serves as the primary location for all inmate-related correspondence and phone inquiries from families. The Divison is currently coordinated by Ronda Larsen, Program Officer I, who works cooperatively with all divisions of the Department to insure that issues are investigated and properly addressed. Ms. Larsen has many years experience in prison administration, and works to ensure that those contacting the Division are provided with accurate, up-to-date information.

The Division staff works closely with Wardens, Associate Wardens, and other NDOC employees throughout the Department. They are trained to answer questions pertaining to virtually all aspects of the incarceration process. They forward ideas and suggestions for improvement to the Director for consideration. All correspondence received by the Division is perused and responded to by the Director or his designated representative.

We hope the operation of the Family Services Division will result in more effective services being provided. You can reach the Family Services Division Staff as follows:
