(Las Vegas, NV) — Clark County commissioners will vote tomorrow on raising the sales tax to pay for additional police officers.

The More Cops initiative would raise the county sales tax to 8.25 percent. Metro says this will allow them to avoid layoffs and add up to 100 more officers in the next few years.

If approved, the tax hike will take effect in October.
