Commission Chair Says Metro Sheriff May Not Be Providing Accurate Officer Numbers

( Las Vegas, NV ) – After the so-called “More Cops” proposal to raise the local sales tax went down to defeat before the Clark County Commission,  Commission Chair Steve Sisolak says the matter may no longer just about raising the sales tax to pay for more officers.

On the KXNT Morning News Sisolak said, “It’s about the trust that people have in Metro and the transparency that they feel Metro either has or lacks.”

He went on to say Metro Sheriff Doug Gillespie may not be providing accurate numbers when he talks about how many officer serve our area. –

He also told 100.5 he feels bad for people taking time off from work to spend hours at the commission chambers waiting to say their piece – on either side of the tax hike issue – only to see it come again weeks or months down the road.

KXNT will continue to follow the “More Cops” sales tax initiative.
