In Nevada, Clark County’s Sheriff Doug Gillespie is lobbying the seven County Commissioners for a .15% sales tax increase throughout the county to fund additional police officers and also avoid next year’s potential layoffs. Las Vegas’s Metropolitan Police Department is looking at a $30 million deficit, which will eventually cause a reduction of police officers; currently, the city and the county share the costs of this department. Speaking on his vote lobbying, Gillespie says “I’d love 7-0, I’ve told them that, and that’s my goal. I think that sends a really good message.” The tax increase would also generate revenue for the Henderson, Mesquite, and North Las Vegas police departments.
