LVPD earns three-year accreditation following audit

From the Las Vegas Optic

The Las Vegas Police Department has earned accreditation through a statewide program, the department announced last week.

According to an LVPD press release, the department has once again gained accreditation from the New Mexico Law Enforcement Professional Standards Council through the New Mexico Municipal League.

“The accreditation serves as the New Mexico Municipal League’s recognition that (the) Las Vegas Police Department operates at or above the standards that (NMML) have outlined,” Bibb told the Optic via email. “It also serves as a sign to the people of Las Vegas that the police department is performing at or above the level of every other accredited police department.”
