What can I do if I am a victim of domestic violence?

Call the police immediately. Dial 9-1-1 if the abuser is still there. Victims of actual, or even threatened abuse can get Court orders requiring the abuser to stay away from the victims or anywhere they may be. These Protection Orders can be obtained from the Family Court at One South Sierra Street in Reno. Call 325-6726. Once a Protection Order is issued, keep a copy handy at all times. Do not allow violations of the Order by inviting the abuser to visit “on good behavior”. All violations of a Protection Order should be reported to the police immediately.
