Nevada Jails & Detention Centers – Where People May Go If They Get Arrested For A DUI
If someone you know has gotten a DUI or you suspect they have and would like to locate them, we have provided contact information to various police departments and law enforcement agencies below. Note: in smaller cities and in rural areas, people may be transported to larger holding facilities and detention centers. We have organized this page based on Nevada state geography to make it easier to find the correct agency.
