Nevada Remedies; Special Actions and Proceedings

Sec. § 34.600
In certain cases warrant may issue instead of writ.

Whenever it shall appear by satisfactory proof, by affidavit, to any judge authorized by law to grant a writ of habeas corpus, that anyone is illegally held in custody, confinement or restraint, and that there is good reason to believe that such person will be carried out of the jurisdiction of such judge before whom the application is made, or will suffer some irreparable injury before compliance with the writ of habeas corpus can be enforced, the judge may cause a warrant to be issued, reciting the facts, and directed to the sheriff or any constable of the county, commanding such officer to take such person thus held in custody, confinement or restraint and forthwith bring him or her before such judge, to be dealt with according to law.
