Office of Law Enforcement - Reno, Nevada

Baiting Field

Reno is close to the state capitol (Carson City) and in close proximity to the Nevada Division of Wildlife (NDOW) headquarters office. This office works other cities and areas of northern Nevada, where there is opportunity for liaison and cooperation between a large Service Endangered Species staff at the Nevada Fish and Wildlife Office, the Nevada Department of Wildlife headquarters office, federal courts, and the office of the Nevada U.S. Attorney.

Agents work cases involving habitat destruction/modification, and cases related to illegal take of trust species, such as eagles and migratory birds. Considerable investigative time is invested in working Lacey Act (interstate commerce) investigations which provides support to state agencies, and is of vital importance in maintaining close and productive working relationships. Special Agents also work on investigating violations of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, Eagle Act, Airborne Hunting Act, and pesticide and contaminants cases.
