Positions manage the inmate work program at one or more correctional facilities and are responsible for budget maintenance, project planning, community relations, resource management, security planning, and supervision of assigned personnel.
Incumbents function as managers who train, supervise and evaluate the performance of subordinate supervisors; develop policies and procedures; and allocate staff and resources to accomplish goals and objectives. The Nevada Division of Forestry's (NDF) mission is to provide professional natural resource and wildland fire management services to enhance, conserve and protect forest, rangeland and watershed values, endangered plants and other native flora. The Division of Forestry has a unique partnership with the Department of Corrections to train and provide labor skills in natural resource and wildland fire management to minimum security inmates to provide professional job skills for rehabilitation and to reduce recidivism. The Conservation Camps provide inmate work crews that conduct natural resource project work and respond to wildland fires; the Conservation Camp Area Supervisor is responsible for ensuring the three Conservation Camps within their region work to fulfill NDF's mission of natural resource management and protection. The Area supervisor provides direct supervision to three Conservation Camp supervisors and reports directly to the Conservation Camp Program Manager. The Area Supervisor ensures the camps are meeting their targets through providing leadership and direction, monitoring camp performance and producing reports documenting camp output.
The Area Supervisor ensures that Conservation Camps in their region are fully staffed with qualified employees that support and carry out the Agency mission of natural resource management and protection. Support for the Agency mission is fostered through providing clear explanation of State office expectations and providing an understanding of the importance of the Conservation Camp program in accomplishing the mission.
This is a regional leadership position that represents the Conservation Camp program on the regional management team. The position is responsible for fostering good communication between the Conservation Camp, Natural Resource and Fire programs, as well throughout the three camps under the incumbent's direction and up to the State office located in Carson City.
