Henderson police closing 2 satellite desks

The Henderson Police Department is temporarily closing two satellite service desks to put those officers in the field.

Desk services have closed at the West Police Station, 300 S. Green Valley Parkway, and at the North Police Station, 225 E. Sunset Road.

The desk at the Main Police Station, 223 Lead St. behind City Hall, will remain open seven days a week, including holidays, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., to answer questions, take reports and assist with non-emergency requests.

The closures will allow for more officers on patrol and available to respond to emergency calls, the department said in a statement.

The desks are scheduled to reopen after the current class of 14 candidates graduate from the police academy and are fully trained by the summer of 2015.

Nonviolent crime reports such as minor theft, vandalism, lost property and accidents on private property can also be filed at www.cityofhenderson.com/police.

There have been 5,608 reports filed electronically since the department’s online reporting system was launched in October 2011.
