A new law (effective May 24, 2013) in Nevada requires wireless
providers to provide, on request of a law enforcement agency, certain call
location information about their subscriber’s devices. To facilitate the
processing of such requests, wireless providers, including resellers, must also
provide emergency contact information to the Nevada Department of Safety.
To assist law enforcement in responding to a call for emergency services or in an emergency situation that involves the immediate risk of death or serious physical harm, the new law requires that a wireless provider provide certain call location information. The information must: (1) be provided upon request of a law enforcement agency; and (2) be the most accurate call location information readily available given any technical or other limitations that may affect the accuracy of the call location information in the relevant area.
