FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE
PLEASE CONTACT KATHLEEN RICHARDS, (702) 267-2051
Henderson, Nev. – The Henderson Police Department has consolidated desk services at one location, the Main Police Station at 223 Lead St. Desk officers are available seven days a week, including holidays, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. to answer questions, take reports and assist with non-emergency requests.
Desk services will temporarily close at the West Police Station, 300 S. Green Valley Pkwy. and the North Police Station, 225 E. Sunset Rd. Consolidating desk services will allow for more officers to be on patrol and able to respond to emergencies. Desk services will reopen at the West and North police stations once officers currently in the academy are fully trained and staffing levels improve, expected by summer of 2015.
Citizens have the option of filing a police report for non-violent crimes through an online reporting system at cityofhenderson.com/police. A report can be filed at any time for such crimes as minor theft, vandalism, lost property and accidents on private property. A crime can only be filed through the online system if there is no suspect information. Traffic accident reports for closed cases are available online at no charge from crashdocs.org.
When a citizen completes an online crime report, they will receive a temporary report by email. A police supervisor will review the report to ensure the required information has been provided. If the report is approved, it will be assigned a Henderson Police Department report number and emailed to the citizen. If the report is incomplete, the citizen will receive an email with further instructions.
There have been 5,608 reports filed electronically since the Henderson Police Department’s online reporting system was launched in October 2011.
Citizens should continue to dial 9-1-1 for emergencies such as a crime in progress, violent crime, fire or medical emergency, and vehicle crash with injury.
