Douglas County phone systems are experiencing service interruptions caused by regional phone outages. There is currently no estimated time of resolution.

The Douglas County 911 emergency line is currently not affected; however, the non-emergency dispatch line (775-782-5126) is being impacted. Those with non-emergency calls may need to try more than once to get through. 

There are also interruptions in transferring callers to other County services due to the issue. If the public needs to reach the following services, we recommend trying to call them directly:

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Records: 775-782-9933

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Jail: 775-782-9922

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Admin: 775-782-9900

Douglas County Civil Court: 775-782-9942

Because the elevator in the Historic Douglas County Courthouse is out of order, the county will be allowing residents to participate in Thursday's commission meeting via Zoom.

Members of the public that wish to view and/or participate in the meeting may use the Zoom registration link: Participants that join will be muted until it is time for public comment. A moderator will then unmute participants one at a time for public comment.


The meeting will be live-streamed for the public to watch on the County’s YouTube page and public comment can be submitted in writing in advance of the meeting through the County’s public comment form by clicking on the following link:
