The Administrative Services Division can provide police reports to the public according to Nevada State law. It is important to remember that if you are not involved with an incident you will not be able to obtain the report unless a person involved provides written notarized permission for you to pick up the report on their behalf. Other factors may also prevent you from obtaining a police report including, but not limited to, the case status, the type of case, and whether or not there were any juveniles involved with the incident. Any reports taken on juveniles are not in the custody of the Mesquite police department and therefore cannot be obtained through our Administrative Services Division. To obtain a juvenile report you must contact Juvenile Parole and Probation. Please Keep in mind the following when requesting Reports.
