LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Starting Tuesday, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department will reopen their services, but there will be changes to prevent spreading COVID-19.
Everyone who visits an area command will have to wear a mask and get their temperature taken. Then, they'll be asked to wait outside in their car until they're called.
These changes are to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
With LVMPD reopening, you can now file a police report at your local area command.
The department has said there's actually been a drop in crime since the pandemic started, with a 27% decrease in crime overall. However, officials with SafeNest say they've seen an increase in calls for domestic violence.
If you are in a situation where you feel you need help or support due to violence in your home, call or text SafeNest at 702-646-4981. You can also chat with someone on SafeNest.org.
Also included in the LVMPD reopening is the records and fingerprint bureau and the evidence vault.
