NRS 171.1235 Gaming licensee may detain person suspected of having committed felony in gaming establishment.

1. As used in this section:

(a) "Establishment" means any premises whereon any gaming is done or any premises owned or controlled by a licensee for the purpose of parking motor vehicles owned or operated by patrons of such licensee.

(b) "Licensee" has the meaning ascribed to it in NRS 463.0171.

2. Any licensee or the licensee's officers, employees or agents may take into custody and detain any person when such licensee or the licensee's officers, employees or agents have reasonable cause to believe the person detained has committed a felony, whether or not in the presence of such licensee or the licensee's officers, employees or agents.

3. Detention pursuant to this section shall be in the establishment, in a reasonable manner, for a reasonable length of time and solely for the purpose of notifying a peace officer. Such taking into custody and detention shall not render the licensee or the licensee's officers, employees or agents criminally or civilly liable for false arrest, false imprisonment, slander or unlawful detention unless such taking into custody and detention are unreasonable under all the circumstances.

4. No licensee or the licensee's officers, employees or agents are entitled to the immunity from liability provided for in this section unless there is displayed in a conspicuous place in the establishment a notice in boldface type clearly legible and in substantially this form:

Any gaming licensee or the licensee's officers, employees or agents who have reasonable cause to believe that any person has committed a felony may detain such person in the establishment for the purpose of notifying a peace officer.
