(Added to NRS by 1973, 1060; A 1975, 1145; 1983, 1088; 1997, 333; 1999, 3406)

NRS 458.270 Procedure for placing person in civil protective custody.

1. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 7, a person who is found in any public place under the influence of alcohol, in such a condition that he is unable to exercise care for his health or safety or the health or safety of other persons, must be placed under civil protective custody by a peace officer.

2. A peace officer may use upon such a person the kind and degree of force which would be lawful if he were effecting an arrest for a misdemeanor with a warrant.

3. If a licensed facility for the treatment of persons who abuse alcohol exists in the community where the person is found, he must be delivered to the facility for observation and care. If no such facility exists in the community, the person so found may be placed in a county or city jail or detention facility for shelter or supervision for his health and safety until he is no longer under the influence of alcohol. He may not be required against his will to remain in a licensed facility, jail or detention facility longer than 48 hours.

4. An intoxicated person taken into custody by a peace officer for a public offense must immediately be taken to a secure detoxification unit or other appropriate medical facility if his condition appears to require emergency medical treatment. Upon release from the detoxification unit or medical facility, the person must immediately be remanded to the custody of the apprehending peace officer and the criminal proceedings proceed as prescribed by law.

5. The placement of a person found under the influence of alcohol in civil protective custody must be:

(a) Recorded at the facility, jail or detention facility to which he is delivered; and

(b) Communicated at the earliest practical time to his family or next of kin if they can be located.

6. Every peace officer and other public employee or agency acting pursuant to this section is performing a discretionary function or duty.

7. The provisions of this section do not apply to a person who is apprehended or arrested for:

(a) A civil or administrative violation for which intoxication is an element of the violation pursuant to the provisions of a specific statute or regulation;

(b) A criminal offense for which intoxication is an element of the offense pursuant to the provisions of a specific statute or regulation;

(c) A homicide resulting from driving, operating or being in actual physical control of a vehicle or a vessel under power or sail while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or a controlled substance or resulting from any other conduct prohibited by NRS 484.379, 484.3795, subsection 2 of NRS 488.400, NRS 488.410 or 488.420; and

(d) Any offense or violation which is similar to an offense or violation described in paragraph (a), (b) or (c) and which is set forth in an ordinance or resolution of a county, city or town.

(Added to NRS by 1973, 1060; A 1975, 1145; 1989, 1181; 1997, 333; 1999, 3407; 2001, 425)
