North Las Vegas opens its newest police station

Updated May 8, 2024 - 2:01 pm

North Las Vegas has had more than its share of growth in the last few years, and one of the signs of that growth is being celebrated Wednesday.

The city held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday morning for its third police station at Deer Springs Way in the Villages at Tule Springs master-planned community.

Mayor Pamela Goynes-Brown pointed out one of the features of the new station — a community room, which will be available to host public meetings and community gatherings. “This just shows that our police department and our police officers want to be where the people are.”

The new facility will house the North Las Vegas Police Department’s North Central Area Command. It measures over 25,000 square feet and will serve residents and businesses north of Alexander Road, the city said.

The station was built through a public-private partnership between the city and developer D.R. Horton.

“Communities are much more than just building homes,” said Tim Colbert, Las Vegas division president for D.R. Horton. “A community should have amenities, such as parks and trails. It should have schools, public services and, of course, public safety.”
