12/11/2016

On Saturday, December 10, 2016 downtown Reno was filled with Santas, elves, reindeer, and an assortment of other Christmas characters patronizing businesses for the 16th annual Reno Santa Pub Crawl.

The CSAST was created to address businesses or issues within the community that appeared to be in need of education and/or enforcement of adopted ordinances that provide for safety and quality of life standards as established by local, state, or federal laws.

 

CSAST stats:

 

  • 60 businesses visited

  •  5 citations issued during the event (alcohol cards and code enforcement)

Winter Weather Safety from the Reno Police Department

12/7/2016

Cold winter weather has settled into Northern Nevada, and families will soon be planning road trips to see loved ones for the holidays.   With the cold weather, citizens are also leaving their vehicles unattended while they warm up outside of their homes.  Reno Police want to give the members of our community some safety tips for traveling in winter storms and warming up your vehicle on cold mornings.

Preparing your vehicle for the winter season and knowing how to react if you break down or get stuck in a winter storm are key to safe winter driving.  Drivers should have the following items checked by a mechanic prior to driving their vehicle in the winter:

Battery, antifreeze, wipers and windshield washer fluid, ignition system, lights and your vehicles heater.  Also make sure your tires have plenty of tread and are properly inflated as well as proper sized snow chains.    

Reno Police also recommend that before leaving your home on a road trip, families need to make sure they pack a sleeping bag or blankets, flashlight, first aid kit, necessary medications, matches, small shovel, extra food, charging cable for their cell phone and water.  Also letting your loved ones know the route you plan on traveling in case you do get stuck in a storm to assist any search and rescue efforts. 

Finally, this time of year the Reno Police Department sees an increase in vehicle thefts due to citizens leaving their idling vehicles warming up in their driveway or on the street.  Reno Police highly discourage leaving your vehicle running unoccupied with the keys in it whether at home or to run quickly into a convenience store.  If citizens need to warm their cars up they should consider investing in a security kill switch or auto start system for their vehicles.

For more information on the Reno Police Departments safety tip, community outreach and more information about the department, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
