50th anniversary celebration for Incline Village sheriff’s substation
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office invites residents to join staff for a celebration commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Incline Village Substation.
Festivities will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. p.m. Saturday, July 26. Residents will have a chance to meet Sheriff’s Office staff and learn about services provided through the substation.
They will also be able to tour the facility at 625 Mt. Rose Highway and see the results of a recently completed remodeling project.
The Incline Village Substation opened its doors to the public in 1964 to serve the communities of Incline Village and Crystal Bay.
At the time, the lower part of the substation provided living quarters for the station commander and family, and the upper floor housed the public lobby, two jail cells, booking area and dispatch center.
Over the years, the substation was remodeled to meet the changing needs of the Sheriff’s Office and the public. Now the substation provides a variety of services in addition to assisting with crime reporting, including the processing of concealed weapons permits, work permits, fingerprinting and dog licenses.
Visitors to the 50th anniversary celebration should be sure not to miss the substation’s large collection of law enforcement patches from agencies around the world. The collection started shortly after the Substation opened in 1964.
