The Reno Police Department is changing the way it is responding to victims. Our reporter Stephanie Serrano got a firsthand look at some of the differences.

Within the last year, the city invested close to $100,000 to remodel the front desk of the Reno Police Department. This may sound like a cosmetic adjustment, but historically, people would make their reports through a plexiglass window in front of whoever was in the lobby, no matter the case.
