The Municipal Court is changing the way it handles domestic violence cases, allowing the City Attorney’s Office to charge its own cases. Prosecutors now draft all criminal complaints on domestic violence cases. The goal is to review and charge on Domestic Battery arrests within 72 hours.

RPD has incorporated Family Crime Detectives to involve them in cases set for trial, since the City Attorney’s Office does not have investigators. Detectives, advocates, and prosecutors meet on a weekly basis. Detectives are actively working on follow-up on cases, gathering more evidence and locating victims and witnesses for trial.
“With the assistance of the police department, our goal is to take more cases to trial that are evidence-based, without the victim testimony,” Hall adds.

With St. Patrick’s Day celebrations centered on drinking, the Reno Police will be on the lookout for drunk drivers and intoxicated pedestrians to make sure our community is being safe. The men and women of the Reno Police Department encourages anyone driving to be extra cautious on the roads and slow down when in the downtown area or areas where there is pedestrian traffic. Realize that just because you are a safe and sober driver does not mean other people are. Unfortunately a disproportionate amount of traffic accidents on St. Patrick’s Day are caused by people driving under the influence.
Some of the top safety tips for St Patrick’s Day and everyday from the Reno Police Department and City of Reno are:
So whether you are driving a car or crossing the street on foot, keep your awareness levels high and return home safely to your family and friends.

With 285 lives lost in Nevada traffic crashes last year, the Nevada Departments of Transportation and Public Safety are hosting the Nevada Traffic Safety Summit. To be held March 24-25, 2015 in Reno, the summit will bring transportation agencies, law enforcement, and other safety partners together to discuss the latest traffic safety trends and further develop strategies and programs to save lives on Nevada roads.
After Nevada traffic fatalities reached an all-time high of 432 in 2006, NDOT and partners developed the Nevada Strategic Highway Safety Plan with life-saving strategies in key traffic safety areas such as pedestrian safety and impaired driving. Since that time, Nevada traffic and safety advocates have worked together to implement those strategies with the goal of cutting the yearly traffic fatality average in half by 2030, and an ultimate goal of zero traffic deaths on Nevada roads.
The safety summit will be an opportunity for transportation, safety and law enforcement experts to prioritize and enhance strategies in the state’s six traffic safety emphasis areas: pedestrian safety, intersection safety, impaired driving, distracted driving, seatbelt use and motorcycle safety. The summit will serve as the kicking off point to establish an updated Nevada Strategic Highway Safety Plan valid through 2020.
“Throughout each and every year, agencies and groups across the state are developing and putting in place important engineering, law enforcement, emergency medical response and public education improvements,” NDOT Chief Traffic Safety Engineer Ken Mammen said. “NDOT and the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety host this safety summit every two years to give a jumping off point for the next round of traffic safety.
