Forensic Audit on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD)

 

Las Vegas Nevada April 29, 2013 The Veterans In Politics International is requesting a Forensic Audit to be conducted in regards to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

We request an organization outside of the State of Nevada, and with no connections to Nevada, conduct this Audit, to insure that the investigation and results are not tainted by bias and corruption, and that no intimidation or isolation tactics will be used to influence the report. These conditions are well known to exist inside the LVMPD and are often employed on the local media.

Millions of dollars are being wasted every year in LVMPD and millions of dollars is being asked for each year by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Douglas A. Gillespie. Certainly asking for a forensic audit is justified when Gillespie has asked that our sales tax increased in proposed Assembly Bill 496, to pay for more officers, equipment, salary increase for existing officers, and benefits.

This tax affects every citizen in Clark County. Nobody can escape this tax. It is crucial to know on what LVMPD is spending before more revenue is taken from us.

 

Here are some examples. The new LVMPD Headquarters building on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard costs tax payers over one million dollars per month in rent. $42 million dollars for a faulty communication system that has cost people’s lives. $1.2 million for 8 officers who work solely for the Police Protective Association. Outrageous salaries and pay outs to over 300 officers. The absurd sums that have been awarded to family members of those killed my LVMPD – deaths which could have been avoided with properly trained and dedicated officers. There are many more examples.

 

It is time we as community demand accountability and it starts with a Forensic Audit.

 

Sheriff Gillespie testified before the Nevada Assembly Taxation Committee that crime has increased. However, according to the Sheriffs own annual report for 2011, crime has decreased. This Sheriff lied repeatedly to the public to get sympathy for his own gain and ego.

 

A Statement from Sheriff Gillespie in the Annual Report 2011: “Looking forward to a productive 2012, and the continued development of trust and partnership with our community, and further reduction of crime in the Las Vegas valley. Below are some of the department’s noteworthy five year reductions in crime:

 

2011                 2006                 % Change

 

Homicide                                   86                     157                   -45.22%

Robbery                                    3,493                5,381                -54.05%

Assault (Gun)                            707                   1,256                -43.71%

Burglary                                    12,662              14,913              -15.09%

Auto Theft                                 6,787                19,677              -65.51%

 

As the Sheriff of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, I take great pride in presenting the 2011 Annual Report. This report highlights the outstanding values and service of the members of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.”

Sheriff Douglas C. Gillespie

 

Below is a list of officers who retired in 2011. Officers are counting down the days, because they do not want to work under this Sheriff’s leadership anymore. We are spending millions of dollars every year on pensions alone.
