Crime Stoppers Anonymous Tip Line
The Henderson Police Department encourages residents to
make use of the Crime Stoppers of Nevada anonymous tip line to help
ensure safety in the community.
The most common reasons people give
for not contacting Crime Stoppers with vital information are:
The person in possession of the information does
not care about the arrest of the suspects or solving the crime
They are unsure if the information they possess is
They are unsure if police want the information
Remember, the police would rather investigate hundreds
of tips that prove fruitless than have people withhold information that
could ultimately turn out to be helpful.
In cases dealing with felony crimes, tips
processed through Crime Stoppers that directly lead to an arrest or an
indictment may result in a cash reward.

Q: My neighbor's
trees are hanging over my property line; what are my rights and what
can I do to solve the problem?
Reader Question of the Month
A: Overhanging trees and other landscape
encroachments from a private property upon another's private property are
outside the Henderson Municipal Codes and strictly a civil matter.
If the landscape encroachment results from plantings in the "public-way",
the City of Henderson will trim and maintain the encroaching
plants. However, if your landscape enters upon public property, you, as
the property owner, are required to maintain clearances of (1) three foot
radius around fire hydrants, and (2) seven foot height clearance about
hydrants and walkways as well as (3) other safety provisions.
Per Henderson Municipal Code 8.68.010, it is unlawful for any person to cut,
root up or otherwise injure or destroy any tree, shrub, plant or other
growing thing without permission of the owner thereof. Consult your
Homeowners' Association, if applicable, on whether it has a standard
regarding planting encroachments.
To inquire about
mediation, contact the Clark County
Neighborhood Justice Center at (702) 455-3898.
