Las Vegas Councilman Angry At His County Colleagues

Bob Coffin Upset Over "More Cops" Vote Delay

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Las Vegas Councilman Bob Coffin is lashing out at county officials for delaying a vote to raise sales taxes and fund more police officers.

The “Review-Journal” says Coffin claims high crime areas of the city are, quote, “essentially being held hostage by a majority of the county commission.”

Coffin also questioned whether the city would get its fair share of police services.  Its share of funding for the Metro Police budget is about 40 percent.

Commissioners are scheduled to vote on two separate proposals October 1st.  One would raise the sales tax by less than a quarter-cent.  The other would authorize a smaller amount, with Metro using reserve funds to help hire more cops.
