Las Vegas Municipal Court Introduces New Warrant Search Website
Public Can Search Information On Warrants, Submit Anonymous Tips And More

 

The Las Vegas Municipal Court has introduced a new warrant search website as part of several new customer service improvements that allow residents to conduct transactions with the court at their convenience, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The new website, at www.lasvegasnevada.gov/warrants, provides information for citizens and law enforcement on individuals with warrants in the city of Las Vegas. Through this website, anyone can submit anonymous tips, or individuals with warrants may surrender themselves, or contact the court to satisfy their warrants. Additionally, law enforcement can view and/or print out wanted posters to assist in locating defendants in specific areas.

Several other new online features on the court’s website allow individuals to view their cases, enter a plea on most traffic cases, make payments, view class requirements and check court dates by visiting municourt.lasvegasnevada.gov.

The court’s new interactive phone system enables the public to make payments for most traffic tickets on which they have entered a plea, check warrant status and obtain case information. These services are available by calling 702-229-3504.

In cooperation with the city’s Department of Detention and Enforcement, along with the new warrant feature, upgrades to the court’s website also allow individuals to post bail for eligible inmates in the city of Las Vegas Detention Center.

Another new online feature allows attorneys to look up client cases, get case assignments and act on behalf of their clients. Bondsmen may also look up bond information.
In addition, those looking for information about Municipal Court cases can look up and print out a case report online at www.lasvegasnevada.gov/courtsearch. The new search function allows those with a case number to enter the number and obtain a report about a specific case including case history, fines owed and next court date.
Chief Judge Bert Brown said, “The judges and staff of the Las Vegas Municipal Court are excited to announce this new web and phone based interactive systems. They enhance the court’s ability to provide the public and law enforcement timely, convenient access to warrant and case-information. With these new systems, not only will warrant information be readily accessible, but individuals will be able to look up their case to learn its status, pay court ordered fines and more from their home by using the phone or the internet. We are proud to be able to offer these services, and strongly believe they will be a great benefit to our community.”

Individuals can call 702-229-3504, or visit municourt.lasvegasnevada.gov  for more information.
