Phone Solicitations for Donations to First Responders not Endorsed by Reno Police

10/31/2017

Reno, NV – Over the last several weeks, Reno Police have received several inquiries from concerned citizens wanting to confirm phone solicitors claiming to have ties to law enforcement.   The phone solicitors have been contacting residence in Northern Nevada claiming to represent the Reno Police Department or one of the Department’s Employee Associations, and are asking for donations to the Department. 

The Reno Police Department wants to advise our community that we do not endorse nor partake in solicitations for funds.   The Reno Police Department Employee Associations (RPSAE and RPPA) also do not solicit over the phone. 

With the Holiday Season approaching, citizens need to be wary of phone scams that have been a problem in our area in the past, such as the IRS and fake warrant scams. 

The Reno Police Department wants to remind our community of some basic safety tips when they receive calls from potential scammers.   

1. Be wary if you are being asked to act immediately. Scammers typically try to push you into giving them money or bank account information before you have had time to think.

2. Law enforcement agencies and other legitimate businesses do not call, text or email for money over the phone.  You will be contacted in person or by mail.

3. Don't wire money or use a prepaid debit card. Scammers often pressure people into wiring money or using a prepaid debit card. It's like sending cash: once it's gone, you can't trace it.

4. If it sounds too good to be true it normally is.

5.  If you won a prize from any legitimate company or business, you do not have to send money to get money.  

6.  Ask the person on the other end for verification of who they are, and to mail you information before agreeing to send any money. 

Reno Police also want to encourage anyone with elderly friends or family to discuss these phone scams with them and to advise them to not send any money to these scammers.

Citizens are encouraged to report incidents involving persons claiming to be with IRS to the Department of the Treasury at 800-366-4484 or on line at ortigta.gov.  Anyone who has been a victim of these phones scams in Reno is asked to file a report with Reno Police.

Halloween safety tips from the Reno Police Department

10/30/2017

Reno, NV – Halloween is an exciting night of the year for young children, but it is also a time for parents to be extra vigilant for potential safety hazards. The Reno Police Department wants everyone to have a happy, fun, and safe Halloween by following these safety tips:

  • Stay on sidewalks and use crosswalks
  • When crossing any street make sure you make eye contact with drivers of vehicles and they stop their car before crossing
  • Make a map of your route or of the neighborhoods you are going to visit
  • Carry a flashlight and have it on during hours of darkness
  • Travel in groups
  • Wear reflective clothing or bands
  • Never go into a strangers house or get into a strangers vehicle

Parents are also urged to throw away any candy or treats that come in a wrapper that has a twist opening.  Parents and children should avoid any off-brand-looking candy, or candy that looks like it has been tampered with.

The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office is providing free Halloween candy X-Ray inspection Wednesday, November 1, 2017, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the entrances to both Washoe County District and Justice Court Buildings, located at 75 Court Street, and 1 South Sierra Street in Reno.

Las Vegas Shooting

10/2/2017

Reno, Nevada (October 2, 2017) —

On behalf of the Reno City Council, Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve has issued the following statement regarding the Las Vegas shooting:

The City of Reno is getting questions from our community about the senseless act of violence that occurred in Las Vegas. Reno is sending prayers and love to all those who were affected by this terrible tragedy. I echo Governor Sandoval and all of our state’s leaders when I say that my heart and prayers go out to the victims and their families and friends who were brutally killed and injured in this shocking incident. In accordance with the Presidential proclamation, all flags in the City of Reno will be flown at half-staff through sunset on Friday as we mourn together as a community.

The Reno Police Department has issued the following statement, with updated information:

In response to last night’s senseless and cowardly act, Chief Soto has reached out to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) and Sheriff Lombardo, on behalf of the men and women of the Reno Police Department (RPD). Chief Soto offered condolences to Sheriff Lombardo and his staff and offered to provide LVMPD with any assistance and/or resources RPD may provide. 

We have also offered our assistance to the FBI, who is assisting LVMPD. The local office of the FBI has formally requested the assistance of RPD in regards to the Las Vegas shooting incident. Any further inquiries may be directed to the FBI.

As is done after any active assailant incident, RPD will review the incident in an effort to improve our own tactics and training. RPD will also evaluate safety measures that are implemented for future special events.

Chief Soto and the men and women of the Reno Police Department are keeping the victims and the families of the victims in our thoughts and prayers.

The City of Reno is ready to assist with needed resources during the response and recovery. Those who would like to offer financial assistance to the victims should visit the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund on gofundme.com. Another way to help assist the victims is to donate blood at United Blood Services in Reno.

A community Prayer and Vigil for Las Vegas and its Victims will be held tonight on the Reno City Plaza from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The event is being organized by Acting Together Nevada & The Northern Nevada Coalition.
