Police Services

Nevada State College's mission is to promote a safe and secure campus community. Working cooperatively through an interlocal agreement, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Department of Police Services provides the primary line of protection and security to the NSC campus in order to help achieve this goal. UNLV police officers are full-fledged Category 1 peace officers who've undergone a 22-week, 750-hour Nevada Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) program as well as 560 hours of field training. Similar to Henderson Police, UNLV Police possess full law enforcement authority, such as the right to carry firearms and make arrests. 

Hours of Service

Nevada State College has security protection 24 hours per day and 7 days per week.  Through a contract with the UNLV Department of Police Services, law enforcement services are provided to NSC’s campus community. UNLV Police actively patrol the NSC campus seven days per week: Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.  The Henderson Police Department assists UNLV Police outside of these hours until a UNLV Police officer can relieve them. The college also contracts with Allied Barton for additional daytime security services as well as for coverage overnight.  For police assistance in the case of an immediate emergency or crime in progress, dial 911 from a campus landline or 702-895-3669 from a cellphone.

Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act

The state of Nevada has developed a statewide registry list. The information on the website refers only to persons who have been convicted of, found guilty of, or plead guilty to committing or attempting to commit sexual offenses and may not reflect the entire criminal history of a particular individual.

The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (CSCPA) of 2000 is a federal law that provides for the tracking of convicted sex offenders enrolled at, or employed by, institutions of higher education. The CSCPA is an amendment to the Jacob Wetterling Crimes against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Act.

Under the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, persons required to register under a state offender registration program must notify the state concerning each post-secondary school at which the offender works or is a student. The State of Nevada has developed a state wide registry list. The information on the web site refers only to persons who have been convicted of, found guilty of or plead guilty to committing or attempting to commit sexual offenses and may not reflect the entire criminal history of a particular individual.
