RENO, NV - On Saturday morning, February 16th, the Department of Public Safety (DPS)-Communications Center will have scheduled repair and maintenance to the telephone lines which may interrupt the ability of our dispatchers to receive phone calls. These repairs and updates are scheduled to take place between 8:00 am and noon. Additionally, there is a possibility our *NHP emergency line may be out of service during this time frame.
If anyone needs to make a non-emergency phone call for service to the Department of Public Safety during this maintenance period, please dial (702) 486-4100 ext 6 to reach one of the dispatchers in the NHP Las Vegas office. To report a highway-related emergency during the possible phone service outage, please dial 911 and advise the operator of your crisis.
The NHP Las Vegas office will be dispatching troopers and other divisions of DPS in Northern Nevada during this time frame so that all of our calls for service are handled without delay.
