DPS City Marshals

The Deputy City Marshals are dedicated to keeping the community safe. Marshals provide law enforcement services in buildings, land, and real property owned, leased, or controlled by the city of Las Vegas. This includes the Fremont Street Experience, parks, plazas, trails, and 130 city facilities. 

Marshals exercise concurrent authority with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department within the boundaries of the city of Las Vegas. They work closely with Metro Police and neighboring agencies to provide services to the community. Marshals possess jurisdiction to cite and/or make an arrest when encountering a crime. They have initial investigative responsibility for offenses that occur in and around city-controlled properties.

Deputy City Marshals may:

  • Enforce local and state traffic laws
  • Pursue individuals observed committing criminal acts 
  • Issue citations
  • Arrest individuals pursuant to a warrant
  • Remove abandoned vehicles
  • Serve warrants
  • Pursue and arrest felons
  • Aid victims of crime
  • Secure crime scenes
  • Protect other officers and members of the public

Specialized  Units/Programs:

  • Operation S.A.F.E.R. - To prevent crime and disorder in our tourist corridors, our Department of Public Safety has implemented Operation S.A.F.E.R. (Stronger Alliance For Enforcement and Relationships). The program aims to be proactive using data, leveraging technology and building relationships that create and sustain a safe place for people to live, work and visit. Our Deputy City Marshals will work closely with businesses, residents, private security and law enforcement partners in the Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard at Sahara Avenue areas to sustain the overall improved safety and quality of life. The success of this operation will be assessed by measuring calls for service, crime, community contacts, arrests and citations.
  • Fusion Center - The department participates in the Southern Nevada Counter Terrorism Center (SNCTC).  SNCTC is a fusion center for information sharing that assesses threats and suspicious activity reporting in order to prevent acts of terrorism and targeted violence.
