(Las Vegas, NV) — Clark County commissioners have approved more money for Metro Police, but less than what Sheriff Doug Gillespie wanted.

The $489-million Metro Police budget for the new fiscal year is about $13-million shy of the sheriff’s request.

He says vacant positions will be eliminated, but no layoffs are planned.
