  • California Highway Patrol In Las Vegas



    I was just wondering, when the CHP crosses into another state, they can't arrest or pull over anybody, right?

    Anybody know the story behind this photo?
    May God bless every single public servant out there!

    It may have been a cop conference cause I don't see K9 on the side of the unit and I think the K9 competition was held in California this year.

    It is probably a State Police "how do you guys run things" conference.

      CHP was in Louisiana last year for the Hurricanes as well as some Vegas police. Razor, usually a LEO will go into another state if it's something related to a felony. Won't get into too much details on here, but I am sure you can search on here and find some kind of satisifed answer for you.

        Must have been a VIP extradition cause they usually send the van out to pick up a few at a time.

          There are resident post officers who live in nevada. The states surrounding calif all have 50 mile into the border authority.

            THere are resident CHP officers living in Nevada, but my guess on the photo is that it had something to do with the Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup run that LEOs do every year. CHP always has a big presence.

            Both California and Nevada have provisions that out of state officers (from any state) retain their police powers when in the state on official business. If a CHP officer was chasing a violator across the Nevada border, he can continue the chase to its conclusion (in fact, that happened a few times when I worked in Reno). It doesn't matter if the chase goes for 50 miles or 500. However, assuming the violator is arrested in the neighboring state, he has to be extradited back to answer to any charges in the originating state. The CHP officer couldn't just stuff the violator into hs car and drive back to California.

              Most LEO's working the bordering state lines have their primary authority through CA (of course) with added authority granted by the neighboring state for such response to incidents including for mutual aid, etc

              There's at least two (2) Nor Cal Sheriff Department's whose members work along the state line have State of State of Nevada LEO ID cards for justification - just like if a jurisdiction has an Indian Casino in their area, they also get authority from the Tribal authority to act on their property when called.

                Could be the legendary "Las Vegas Run." That's when you have 8 hours to to drive to Vegas, take your picture in front of a casino, then get back to your RD before end of shift. This, of course, would require the assistance of your sister units to take up the slack. Not that big of a deal if you work on the border, though.

                  No chance. The license plate on the CHP car is visible. That stunt is always done with a masked license plate and officers standing alongside the car with bags over their heads. That said, I once saw a great picture of a Reno PD marked unit parked in front of the Winner's Casino in Winnemucca (about 160 miles from Reno).

                    There are no borders when patrol cars fall in love.

                      Thats funny. I don't care who you are. Now to think of a place that would have the same allure in the midwest....

                          That's funny. I've heard of Houston Texas PD officer making a similar run to Austin. Had to have a photo with the day's paper in hand in front of the capitol building. It's been done.

                            To the original question: I'm not in Nevada or California (unfortunately), but we can cross state lines in fresh pursuit. I suspect those states have similar agreements. The only place I can't go is Canada (I'd run out of gas before I got there anyway).
