who do I contact in Las Vegas, NV to complete my court order to do 24 hours of litter pick up?
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Nevada
Why were you ordered to do litter pick up?
I got a DUI in the state of Tennessee, but moved to Las Vegas for my job. I am currently on telephonic probation and for me to complete unsupervised probation, I must complete 24 hours of litter pick up.
Do you have a probation officer assigned to your case in Tennessee? Thank you.
Yes I have a probation officer assigned to me.
You should contact the probation officer (PO) prior to commencing anything in Nevada. Part of the PO's job is to help get you successfully through probation. As part of that job, he is responsible for ensuring that you know where and how to get things completed.
The PO may very well have contact information that you could use in Nevada. Simply tell the PO that you are working towards completing your conditions of probation in Nevada and need some direction as to how to do so. Specifically, you need to know who to contact to set up the traffic pick up. Ideally, the PO will have such contact information for you.
If not, you might simply look up the probation office closest to you. It is quite probable that the local courts require trash pick up from time to time as well. If so, then the local PO will certainly be able to help you get this set up.
As a final option, the Tennessee PO may give you some discretion to get this completed. By this I mean that you would simply go out on your own, do some trash pick up, record your hours and then report the hours to your Tennessee PO.
