A number of previously unobserved $\gamma$-rays emitted from the neutron-deficient nuclide $\chem{^{171}Pt}$ have been identified using the recoil decay tagging technique. The level scheme has been updated using information from $\gamma$- $\gamma$ coincidences and angular distribution measurements. To further confirm the assignments of the $\gamma$-rays to $\chem{^{171}Pt}$, the events were correlated with the alpha-decay of the daughter nucleus $\chem{^{167}Os}$.
