LAS VEGAS (KSNV – The situation in Ferguson, Mo., is highlighting race relations between law enforcement and the community it is charged with protecting. In Las Vegas, tensions have boiled over in the past.

That being said, the relationship between Metro and the African American community has improved, although some say there's still much to be done.
