Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department News
Las Vegas, March 07, 2023 – Las Vegas businessman Antonio Accornero met with newly-elected Sheriff Kevin McMahill to discuss the future of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. During his race for Sheriff, McMahill ran on the platform that he would “employ effective crime fighting strategies to ensure the safety of our communities,” while also “building authentic police-community relationships.” In order to make good on his promise, the Sheriff is tapping local business owners to support important new projects. He is calling on community leaders to become more involved by contributing their time and resources to the LVMPD.
For years, Mr. Accornero has been one of the most significant supporters of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and he is committed to increasing that support. “As Las Vegas grows, we need to make sure we’re keeping the city safe for our residents and their families,” said Accornero. “One way to do that is to get local business leaders involved, since they are able to make the biggest impact on the community.”
Sheriff McMahill is dedicated to making the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department the most technologically-advanced police department in the United States by developing partnerships with companies and individuals to deploy advanced technologies that make the community safer. This will include the innovative and appropriate use of drone technology, DNA labs, weapon detection, and an expansion of a Real Time Crime Center—all aimed at enhancing the Department’s ability to reduce officer-involved-shootings and fight crime as a whole.
Contributions to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department support LVMPD area commands, special units, equipment, training, hundreds of community engagement programs & initiatives, and crime prevention events that build relationships between law enforcement and the communities they serve.
