Sec. § 33.320
Arrest of person who violates order; service of order; duty to note date and time of service on copy of order issued to employer.


Whether or not a violation occurs in the presence of a law enforcement officer, the officer may, with or without a warrant, arrest and take into custody a person if the officer has probable cause to believe that:


An order has been issued pursuant to NRS 33.270 against the person;


The person has been served with a copy of the order; and


The person is acting in violation of the order.


If a law enforcement officer cannot verify that the person was served with a copy of the order and the officer is at the workplace of the employer, the officer shall serve the person with a copy of the order if a copy is available.


A law enforcement officer who serves a person with a copy of an order pursuant to subsection 2 shall note the date and time of such service on the copy of the order that was issued to the employer.
