GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Sheriff Doug Gillespie says he’s through pushing for a sales tax hike to pay for more police officers.

Last week, a third version of the More Cops tax hike was rejected by Clark County commissioners.

Gillespie says he’ll now look for ways to cut the Metro Police budget, but vows not to lay off any more officers.

That could mean delayed response times and officers no longer responding to minor traffic accidents.
