Las Vegas Justice Court Speeds Up Pre-Booking Process for Arrests on Traffic Bench Warrants

Effective June 10, 2013, the Las Vegas Justice Court will initiate a new step in the process in the administrative matter regarding traffic bench warrants.

In order to alleviate overcrowded conditions at the Clark County Detention Center, the Las Vegas Justice Court has determined that an expeditious additional “pre-booking” process is necessary for the handling of individuals who are arrested on Traffic Bench Warrants.

This additional procedure will only apply to the “pre-booking” process and is not intended to supplant existing guidelines for own-recognizance releases that are currently used by the PreTrial Services Division. For details, download the LVJC Administrative Order #13-01 (PDF)
