The event is scheduled to coincide with the anniversary date of Nevada’s designation as a territory by Congress.
The territory of Nevada was created on March 2, 1861. On Dec. 26 of that same year, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office was established to help bring law to this rugged new territory. Since then, the office has responsibly grown from a single lawman to an agency of over 750 sworn and civilian personnel.
Bartley Ranch Regional Park is located at 6000 Bartley Ranch Road in Reno.
