Public invited to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Sheriff's Incline Village Substation this Saturday
Washoe County Sheriff's Office
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office invites residents to join them for a celebration commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Incline Village Substation.
Festivities will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 26, 2014. Residents will have a chance to meet Sheriff’s Office staff and learn about the services provided through the Substation. They will also be able to tour the facility and see the results of a recently completed remodeling project.
The Incline Village Substation opened its doors to the public in 1964 to serve the communities of Incline Village and Crystal Bay. The lower part of the Substation provided living quarters for the Station Commander and family. The upper floor housed the public lobby, two jail cells, booking area and dispatch center.
Over the years, the Substation was remodeled to meet the changing needs of the Sheriff’s Office and the public. Now the Substation provides a variety of services in addition to assisting with crime reporting, including the processing of concealed weapons permits, work permits, fingerprinting and dog licenses.
Visitors to the 50th Anniversary celebration will also have the chance to meet some of the Sheriff’s Office K-9 teams, RAVEN crew and Search and Rescue volunteers along with other staff. Be sure to check out the Substation’s large collection of law enforcement patches from agencies around the world. The collection started shortly after the Substation opened in 1964.
