Sheriff’s Office Wants Juveniles to Keep from Becoming Victims during Graduation Time

PIO Deputy J. Armando Avina 911 Parr Blvd Reno, NV 89512 Office 328-6370, Cell 771-8252, After Hours Pager 861-7208 Email: javina@washoecounty.us www.washoesheriff.com

The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office reminds residents that drugs and/or alcohol usage plays a major factor in violent crime during graduation time. Detectives see that juveniles, both male and female, are using alcohol, illegal and prescription drugs at younger age which increase the likelihood of placing themselves in dangerous situations. Alcohol is the foremost contributing factor in sexual assault cases being investigated by the Detective Division from May to July. The Sheriff’s Office recommends under aged persons celebrate graduation in an alcohol/drug free environment, stay close to people you trust, don’t accept food or drinks in opened containers offered by unknown people, and avoid high-risk situations. The Sheriff’s Office encourages victims and witnesses to report violent crimes immediately. Call 911 in case of an emergency, non-emergency number 334COPS, or secret witness at 322-4900.
