Welcome to the Nevada High Intensity Drug Traffic Area (HIDTA) website. Here you will find important information about Nevada's HIDTA program including our Nevada Law Enforcement Training Program available to all of Nevada's law enforcement, links to many other agencies, and general information about Nevada HIDTA's programs.

Since February of 2013, Nevada HIDTA has operated a deconfliction and intelligence operation center, the Nevada Watch Center.  This service is available 24/7 in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Information Network (RMIN), the Western Regional Information System (WSIN) and the Regional Information Sharing System (RISS) a nationwide intelligence system.

The 24/7 operation phone contact the entire state of Nevada: 888-294-2337, an email for questions is nevadawc@rmin.riss.net. I strongly urge all law enforcement to use this system to ensure officer safety during plain clothes, covert operations and for case enhancing intelligence. Today's modern deconfliction systems have saved many lives across our nation.

Thank you,

Courageous Leadership for Law Enforcement
Henderson NV, Nevada - Henderson PD Training Center Not just another leadership class! You will be pleasantly surprised.
This dynamic and unique course is led by Tulsa Police
Major Travis Yates, a former International Trainer of the Year by ILEETA, co-founder of the Below 100 Initiative and the Editor In Chief of Law Officer Magazine.

This course will prepare first responders from all ranks to be courageous in their principles in order to give those under their control a safer working environment.  While many leadership courses focus on theory, this course focuses on practice and the principles taught will help the leader immediately and “de-centralized” leadership is emphasized so every police officer from every rank can be inspired to be a leader.
