Sheriff Darin Balaam's statement on events in downtown Reno
911 Parr Blvd
Reno, NV. 89512
"Tonight, our community is continuing to face hardship and we are just as angry about the events that happened in Minneapolis as those demonstrating. But please, for the safety of yourself, your family members, and our community, please go home peacefully.
We hear your anger. We understand your anger. We stand with our community. And we implore you to not let anger destroy our beautiful home."
