Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department News

Las Vegas, June 22, 2024 – It was an evening to remember, as hundreds of distinguished guests gathered to celebrate Sasha Larkin on Saturday. The Assistant Sheriff bade farewell to her storied career in law enforcement with a retirement party for the ages. Guests included past and present members of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, prominent politicians, lawyers and judges, influential business owners, and even Nevada Governor Joe Lombardo!

Sasha Larkin has dedicated more than 25 years to the LVMPD, serving in several capacities from patrol, vice, and internal affairs, to rising in the ranks as Captain of the Summerlin Area Command, and finally solidifying her commitment to public safety as Las Vegas’s first female Assistant Sheriff. In 2008, she co-founded the Women of Metro, dedicated to supporting and empowering women in law enforcement. In recognition of the Assistant Sheriff’s work, Councilwoman Victoria Seaman presented her with a proclamation from the Mayor of Las Vegas and members of the City Council.

As always, local entrepreneur Antonio Accornero was there to show his support, and his restaurant, Siena Italian Authentic Trattoria, provided food for the occasion. “I’m sad that Sasha will be leaving the LVMPD, but I know she is moving on to bigger and better things,” said Accornero. “I wish her all the best in the next chapter of her life!”

The highlight of the evening came as Governor Joe Lombardo presented Larkin with her retirement credentials. In a heartfelt speech, Lombardo said, “It’s an honor for me to be able to be here tonight. Without Sasha’s help, I would not have been Sheriff, and I would not be Governor today.” Sasha expressed her gratitude and addressed everyone in attendance with an emotional sentiment. “I hope if I’ve touched your life in any way, you know that I try to lead and love with light,” she said, “and I thank you all for touching and enriching my life and allowing my light to shine.”
