How to Know If You Are Being Illegally Detained

Under Nevada law, the police may only detain a person suspected of criminal behavior or of violating conditions of probation or parole for purposes of identifying the person and investigating the suspicious circumstances. The detained person is not required to answer any other questions besides ones about their identity.

However, unless the officer arrests the person for probable cause, then the detention cannot last longer than 60 minutes and it can’t extend to a location other than the original place of detainment.
