I have an order (either temporary or extended) and the respondent has violated it. What do I do?
Contact the local law enforcement agency and inform them of the circumstances and situation. They will REQUIRE a copy of the order as proof before any other action is taken. ALWAYS CARRY YOUR ORDER WITH YOU. If the respondent has truly violated the order, the agency will make a report of the violation of the order and submit it to the Washoe County District Attorney`s Office for review. A criminal complaint MAY or MAY NOT be issued thereafter.
