The Reno City Council is scheduled to discuss a possible new location for Reno Police headquarters at next Wednesday's council meeting. 

If ultimately approved, Reno Police would move into the current location housed by the Reno Gazette-Journal newspaper at 955 Kuenzli Street. 

That new headquarters would house safety staff and equipment adding about a quarter more floor space with more access for officers and the public. 

In turn, a sale of the current RPD building and land parcel would be looked at.

The proposal will be discussed at next Wednesday's Reno City Council & Redevelopment Agency Board meeting at 10 a.m. inside the council chamber at One East First Street in Reno.

We reached out to the Reno Police Department and they say the chief is not available for a comment tonight.

The RGJ released this statement to us on Tuesday:

“For nearly 40 years, the Reno Gazette Journal has been located at 955 Kuenzli Street. A couple of years ago, we put our building up for sale so we could find an office that is better suited to our news organization’s digital future," said RGJ Executive Editor Brian Duggan. "Our parent company’s real estate staff is directly handling the sale of our building. The RGJ’s newsroom has no involvement in the sale and we look forward to watching the Reno City Council’s deliberations on this potential sale.”
