About the North Las Vegas Detention Center
As of mid-2012, the North Las Vegas Detention Center has been closed for operations. Arrestees that would traditionally be incarcerated in the North Las Vegas Detention Center, are now being processed and booked into custody at 3300 Stewart Avenue, Las Vegas, Nevada 89101. This is the site of the Las Vegas City Jail, the second biggest jail in the Las Vegas-metropolitan area.

The City of Las Vegas Jail has integrated the names and information of inmates that normally would be jailed at the North Las Vegas Detention Center into their own inmate search tool. Inmate information will become available on the search tool once the arrestee is completely booked and processed into the North Las Vegas Jail, including those who are arrested in North Las Vegas. Processing of arrestees depending on volume at the time of arrival to the facility can take four hours or longer. Once the process is completed, inmate information should appear on the database. There are multiple ways to find the most updated information about an inmate, and those options are listed as a public service below:
Using the Inmate Search Tool
For the public’s convenience, the Las Vegas City Jail offers an on-line database that contains the current status information for prisoners located at the city jail. If on-line access is unavailable, the other option is by using the telephone system, which is set up to assist those looking to find information regarding a specific prisoner. Please note, North Las Vegas Inmates who are brought to the Las Vegas City jail are also added to the online and telephone databases once processing is complete.
Searching by the Last Name
By using the North Las Vegas inmate search tool, type in at least the first two letters of the prisoner’s last name. Multiple names may be returned as a result. The more letters of the last name that are entered, the more precise the database search tool can operate. When the desired returned result is found, click on the name of the prisoner, and information such as formal charges, bail amounts, and the next scheduled court appearance for that prisoner. This tool also covers prisoners that were arrested in North Las Vegas.

Searching for an Inmate Over the Phone
One can use the telephone to find out information about the desired prisoner if on-line access is unavailable. The 24-hour hotline to find out information about inmates can be accessed by calling (702) 608-2245. A live customer service agent can provide the same updated information including bail amounts, charges, and court appearance as the on-line search tool. As with the on-line system, arrestees much be completely processed and booked before their information will be available for access using the telephone system. As with any Las Vegas City Jail prisoner, the same applies to North Las Vegas arrestees.
