New 531 Area Code will effect this area.


All customers with a Nebraska 402 area code must start dialing the area code plus phone number for all local calls beginning on February 26th. Starting on that date you will have to dial the area code before any number you dial, even within the city of Valentine. To ensure a continuing supply of phone numbers, the 531 area code has been added to the 402 area. According to the Public Service Commission, the new lines and services with th 531 area code will not be assigned until sometime in the future when there are limited 402 prefixes left for assignment. You will need to dial 10 digits, the area code, plus seven digit phone number for every local call, beginning on February 26th.

New Drug Dog for City?

Donations are being sought for the purchase of a Narcotic Detection Dog for the Valentine Police Department.  This dog will aid officers in their deterrence of narcotic trafficking, use and transportation within and through our community.  In addition, the dog will be certified to track those who may lose their way in our rural countryside.  The Narcotic Detection dog will be available for public education opportunities as well as school assemblies.  If you would like more information on how to contribute to this endeavor, please contact Dana Miller at 402-376-1183 or Jim McCormick at 402-376-3470 for more details.  Kids are also encouraged to contribute by donating: dog dishes, leashes, dog food and more.  Donations are tax deductible.
