(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Sheriff Doug Gillespie faced a grilling by Clark County commissioners on how a proposed sales tax hike for more police officers would be spent.

The “More Cops” measure would hike the county sales tax to 8.25 percent.

Gillespie says it will pay for at least 100 new officers and over 200 support staff across the valley.

Commissioners will vote on the tax hike next month.
