FBI, DA Asked to Probe School Police Corruption Claims

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Several former Las Vegas-area school police officers say they’ve taken allegations of corruption in the school police department’s internal affairs office to local and federal authorities.

Three former officers told the Las Vegas Review-Journal they provided information to the FBI, and District Attorney Steve Wolfson acknowledged Friday that he’s received documents from the Clark County School District police union.

School Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky told the newspaper that district and Las Vegas police also were investigating.

The case involves allegations of misconduct by a school police internal investigator following a fatal crash in 2009 involving an 18-year-old driver.

The teen later pleaded guilty to drinking alcohol at a Thanksgiving holiday party at a dispatcher’s house.

Capt. Ken Young, a school police department spokesman, declined to comment, citing ongoing probes.
