Laughlin
Township Constable's Office

Civil Law Enforcement Agency

Welcome to the Laughlin Township Constable’s Office
Jordan Ross, Constable


My staff and I are here to serve the public with efficiency, honesty and integrity. Most of your questions should be answered in the links to the left here in this website, but don’t hesitate to contact us if we may be of assistance.

WHAT IS A CONSTABLE?

Nevada constables are civil enforcement officers. The Laughlin Constable’s Office serves all justice courts and both the state and federal district courts throughout all of Clark County. We provide service of summons and complaints, civil subpoenas, public notices, and eviction notices, as well as enforcing wage and bank garnishments, writs of execution, attachment and possession, orders in aid of execution, eviction orders, civil bench warrants, cash keepers, till taps and other property seizures and conduct public auctions.

In the rare instances that we make arrests, prisoners are remanded to the custody of the county sheriff.

Constable’s and their deputies are officers of the courts whose orders they enforce, including justice courts and state and federal district courts. Our jurisdiction, with certain specific exceptions, extends to all counties in the State of Nevada.

N95 Respirators/Masks

Question How can you tell if a respirator is really an N95?

Answer It must be approved by a government agency called NIOSH. NIOSH stands for National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

The NIOSH approval number and approval label are key to identifying NIOSH-approved respirators. The NIOSH approval label can be found on or within the packaging of the respirator or sometimes on the respirator itself. The required labeling of NIOSH-approved N95 filtering face-piece respirators includes the NIOSH name, the approval number, filter designations, lot number, and model number to be printed on the respirator. You can verify that your respirator approvals are valid by checking the NIOSH Certified Equipment List (CEL) by visiting https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/npptl/topics/respirators/cel/default.html.

Confidential Address program for Victims of Domestic Violence or Sexual Assault
(888) 432-6189 or (775) 684-5707 FAX (775) 687-9017
http://dcfs.nv.gov/Programs/CAP/ConfidentialAddressProgram/ 
Are You Afraid Of Being Found By Your Abuser?
The program works by granting participants the use of a fictitious mailing address. When victims enter into business relationships with state and local agencies, the use of the fictitious address both maintains the victims’ confidentiality and relieves those agencies of the difficult and costly responsibilities of maintaining confidential records. The program greatly reduces the risk of being tracked by public records. Another benefit of this program is confidential voter registration records. Pursuant to NRS (Nevada Revised Statutes) 217.464, qualified electors who become participants in the Confidential Address Program may register to vote and vote by absent ballot without revealing the physical address of the participant. Additionally, participants in the Confidential Address Program are exempt from Jury Duty.
Presently there are hundreds of participants in CAP, who are using the benefits in the program to further secure the lives they are living outside of the environment they fled.
