Reno, Nevada (April 13, 2018) — The Reno Police Department (RPD) Records division has launched a new Public Records Request portal using GovQA, which has been utilized by the City of Reno for release of records since October 2016.

To use this portal, visit the Public Records page on, and follow these instructions:
