State Summary

Nevada has domestic legislation that includes same-sex romantic relationships. Although the state is not collecting incident-based data and has no plans to develop an IBR system, the Nevada Department of Public Safety has instituted an incident-level domestic violence data collection system. All 37 law enforcement agencies in the state report domestic violence data monthly using specialized scantron forms. The DPS also maintains the statewide database of protection orders, which is accessible to all state law enforcement agencies.

The Nevada Network Against Domestic Violence does collect statistics from local programs, which are published in quarterly newsletters. Member programs receiving Marriage Licenst Supplement, VOCA or Family Violence and Prevention Services funds voluntarily submit quarterly reports. These statistics are also shared with the Attorney General's Council for the Prevention of Domestic Violence. The Council uses the information, along with sexual assault data from the DPS, to determine funding and for legislative purposes and for their annual report. Information is shared upon request.

The Nevada Coalition Against Sexual Violence does not currently collect information from state agencies, but is in the planning stages of developing a data collection system.
