ACLU of Nevada Reiterates Request for Investigation of Metro

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: (212) 549-2666; media@aclu.org The American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice reiterating its request for a patterns and practices investigation, under federal civil rights law, of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. The ACLU of Nevada and the NAACP of Las Vegas had jointly sent a petition requesting the investigation by the DOJ’s Special Litigation Section in early January. Subsequently, the DOJ told the ACLU of Nevada and the NAACP of Las Vegas that it would monitor work done in Las Vegas by COPS (Office of Community Oriented Policing Services) via a private contractor, the CNA managing consulting firm, and that the DOJ would decide later whether to conduct a full civil rights investigation. For more information on today’s letter to the DOJ, please contact Staci Pratt, ACLU of Nevada’s Legal Director, at 702-366-1226, or Allen Lichtenstein, ACLU of Nevada’s General Counsel, at 702-433-2666. A PDF of the ACLU of Nevada’s letter is attached. For technical problems, please contact Paige White at white@aclunv.org .
