July 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree – $26.95
Courtroom Conversation – Police Use of Force: Policies, Practices and Politics of Reform, Wednesday, July 25, 7 – 9 p.m. Join Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD); Christine Cole, safety and justice reform expert; Greg McCurdy, retired law enforcement executive; and Captain Kelly McMahill for this rare opportunity for citizens of Las Vegas to hear a frank and in-depth conversation among key players in the dramatic reforms of the LVMPD’s use-of-force policies and practices. Police use of force is one of the most contentious issues in America today. A number of controversial police shootings in the Las Vegas area in 2010 and 2011 prompted a federal inquiry, leading to comprehensive reforms within the LVMPD. The collaborative reform process has transformed the department into a national model for other police agencies to emulate. Panelists will explain and discuss the reforms to the LVMPD’s use-of-force policies and practices and how they have improved community relations. Admission for this event free for Museum Members or with general admission.
