New Phone Numbers
All Clark County government office phone numbers have a new area code (564) which replaces the old 360 area code.
All extensions can now be dialed directly by entering (564) 397- followed by the extension number of the party you are trying to reach. For example, if you usually call Probation Counselor Jones at (360) 397-2201 ext. 1234, you can now dial direct: (564) 397-1234. None of our extension numbers have changed.
