Las Vegas, June 24, 2023 – Friends and supporters of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department gathered Saturday evening to celebrate the promotion of Sasha Larkin to the position of Assistant Sheriff of the LVMPD. Larkin made history when Sheriff Kevin McMahill appointed her as Las Vegas’s first female Assistant Sheriff, a result of her experience and dedication to the Department. Having served the LVMPD for over twenty-three years, Larkin currently oversees two divisions that comprise the Special Operations Group: the Homeland Security Division and the Investigative Services Division.

Recognized for her work in community engagement, Sasha was integral in building the Office of Community Engagement (OCE) and the Fusion Liaison Officer Program. She is also Chair of Women of Metro, an outreach organization that mentors women internally for promotion in law enforcement and hosts a variety of community events. The Women of Metro draws support from community leaders, one of the most prominent being Antonio Accornero.

As always, Mr. Accornero was at the Saturday’s event in a show of his ongoing support of Assistant Sheriff Larkin and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. “I am honored to be Sasha’s friend and to take part in her celebration,” said Accornero. “Together, we are planning a big event that I will host later this year in an effort to continue my support of the LVMPD.”

Various local leaders attended the event on Saturday, including Las Vegas City Councilwoman Victoria Seaman, who presented Larkin with a plaque designating June 24, 2023 “Assistant Sheriff Sasha Larkin Day.” Larkin was humbled by the recognition, saying, “I am truly grateful for this honor and to everyone who showed up tonight. Thank you for all of your support!”
