Reno Police Joins Forces to Crack Down on Impaired Drivers Over The Super Bowl Weekend

1/30/2018

Reno, NV – Over the next two weeks, Reno residents can expect to see double or even triple the normal law enforcement presence. The Reno Police Department has joined forces with law enforcement agencies statewide to crack down on impaired driving, and has an important message for the public: if you’ll be drinking, designate a sober driver, and if you drive impaired, you will be arrested.   

Increasing law enforcement presence during these weeks supports the overall state goal of reaching Zero Fatalities. Reno residents can help us reach that goal by following these safety guidelines: 

  • designate a sober driver before drinking;
  • use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member or use public transportation if impaired;
  • take advantage of local sober ride programs;
  • call 911 if a drunk driver is spotted on the road;
  • take the keys or assist in making other arrangements for someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired 

Joining Forces Program is paid for by Nevada Department of Public Safety,  Office of Traffic Safety. 

For resources and laws pertaining to impaired driving and riding, please visit http://www.zerofatalitiesnv.com/dont-drive-impaired.

Armed Robbery Suspect in Standoff with Reno Police Arrested

1/29/2018

Reno, NV – Shortly before 9:30 this morning, Reno Police Dispatch received a 911 call from the Wal-Mart located at 4855 Kietzke Lane in South Reno in regards to an armed robbery which had just occurred.   The victims advised dispatch that the suspect had pointed a gun at them after being confronted about him possibly stealing products.  

Officers quickly arrived in the area and located the suspect from the description given by the victim in the area of Redfield Parkway and Kietzke Lane.  Due to the suspect possibly being armed, Reno Police, with the assistance of the Nevada Highway Patrol and Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, quickly began closing off traffic to the surrounding area for the safety of the citizens in the area. 

Reno Police Negotiators were on scene and began negotiating with the suspect.   The suspect continued to be uncooperative with officers and was ultimately distracted with non-lethal munitions and a Reno PD K-9 and placed into custody.  The suspect was treated for minor injuries by REMSA on scene 

Twenty-six year old Reno resident Anthony Anderson (DOB 09/02/91) was charged with Robbery with a Deadly Weapon, and Obstructing and Resisting Officers. 

The Reno Police Department wants to thank our community for their patience and cooperation with the traffic lane closures during this incident.   We would also like to thank our partnering law enforcement agencies for their assistance in securing the scene, and protecting our community.   

Anyone having any information about this case is asked to contact the Reno Police Department at (775) 334-2188, or Secret Witness at 322-4900, www.secretwitness.comm, or text the tip to 847411 (TIP411) keyword – SW.

Reno Police Urge Residents to not Leave Firearms in Their Vehicles

1/29/2018

Reno, NV – Reno Police are asking for the community’s assistance in helping themselves and law enforcement in preventing criminals from obtaining firearms.   The Reno Police Department has taken 10 reports of vehicle burglaries so far this year in which firearms were stolen from vehicles.   In 2016, there were 150 reported incidents of firearms being stolen out of vehicles in the City of Reno.  In 2017, Reno Police took105 reports of firearms being stolen from vehicles. 

Stolen firearms pose a substantial risk to the community and our officer’s safety.  A firearm recovered in a shooting on January 13, 2018, in Downtown Reno was reported stolen from a vehicle on January 7, 2018.  

Reno Police want to remind our community of some safety tips to help prevent your vehicle from being targeted by criminals. 

  • Document the serial numbers on all your firearms and valuables
  • Take your firearms out of your vehicle and keep your doors locked
  • Do not leave valuables in plain view in your car
  • Park in well-lit, heavily populated areas
  • Avoid parking next to occupied vehicles
  • Do not leave your garage door opener in your vehicle
  • Don’t think your dark tinted windows will hide your valuables.  Thieves often use flashlights to see through tint
  • Report suspicious activity immediately to law enforcement 

If you are unable to remove your firearm from your vehicle, keep it out of sight.   Lock it in your vehicles glove box, or even place it in the trunk of the vehicle.   Citizens who frequently carry their firearms in their vehicles should also consider purchasing a small gun safe that can be securely attached to your vehicle.

Reno, NV –   The Reno Police Department’s Victim Services Unit (VSU) is seeking volunteers for their upcoming Volunteer Victim Advocate Academy starting in March. Volunteer Victim Advocates provide crisis intervention and coordinate emergency and other support services by phone to victims who have experienced domestic violence, stalking, protection order violations, and other victimization.  

Ideal candidates must show reliability, integrity, discretion, compassion and commitment. No prior training or experience is required; volunteers will receive in-depth training in domestic violence, stalking, crisis intervention, case assessment, sexual assault and other valuable skills. 

The initial 40 hour training program is comprised of nine class sessions scheduled on select weeknights and Saturdays, and a police ride-along.  Attendance at all training dates is required. Applicants must be 18 years or older, able to pass a background investigation, drug test, and commit to a minimum one-year term of service to include approximately 30 hours per month and ongoing in-service training. Applications are due by January 19, 2018.
