LAS VEGAS -- With the approval of Senate Bill 1, the More Cops Bill, by the Nevada Legislature, and the signing of the bill into law by Gov. Brian Sandoval, Metro Sheriff Doug Gillespie will be restarting the process of hiring new police officers.

The last police academy graduated in January 2012, and since that time the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has improved and enhanced the recruitment, selection and training of officers.

Metro will conduct an open house at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Jerry Keller Training Facility, 9880 W. Cheyenne Ave. The LVMPD Academy staff will be present to explain improvements to the academy and conduct tours of the facility.

In July, Metro will start the process of recruitment and selection of police recruits for the full time and Reserve Officer programs by conducting the initial written test that is the start of the intensive selection process.
