Las Vegas police records bureau to close during move

The Metropolitan Police Department’s records bureau will be closed for more than a week while it moves to the agency’s new headquarters.

The office at Las Vegas City Hall will close at 7 p.m. Thursday and reopen at 7 a.m. Oct. 8 at the new location, 400 S. Martin Luther King Blvd., Building C.

Requests for copies of reports will be processed when the records bureau reopens.

During the closure, people can make incident reports at any of the Police Department’s seven area commands between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The Police Department, which for decades has been spread throughout offices around the valley, including City Hall, will consolidate most of its administrative and detective units at the new headquarters complex near downtown Las Vegas. The move is expected to be complete next month.

Once Las Vegas’ new city hall opens next year, municipal staffers will move out of the old city hall and be replaced by clothing and shoe retailer Zappos, which will make the building its new headquarters.
