About the Reno Police Department

The Reno Police Department has four Commanders to oversee operations within their assigned areas. Supervised by a Deputy Chief the four commanders oversee Detective Division; North Patrol Division;  South Patrol Division and the Central Patrol Division.  The various division commanders also have ancillary command responsibilities.  As an example, the Central commander is also in charge of the traffic division.


The Division is made up of the following units that each investigate specific areas of crime: Robbery/Homicide Unit, Burglary Unit, Auto Theft Unit, Financial/Computer Crimes Unit, Sex Crimes Unit, Misdemeanor Complaints/Domestic Violence Unit, Northern Nevada Repeat Offender Program, and Sex Offenders' Registration Unit.


In 2000, the Reno Police Department received federal funding to form a team of training experts to create a new post-Academy training program. They developed an officer training program that emphasizes critical thinking and problem solving. Called The Reno Model, this program recognizes the importance of problem-solving skills in training a successful police officer. The Reno Model focuses on adult learning methods and other learning constructs to create a positive experience for the trainee and trainer.
