The Legislative Police serve the Legislative Counsel Bureau and Nevada Legislature in Carson City and Las Vegas. The Legislative Counsel Bureau has approximately 320 employees and when the legislature convenes every two years, an estimated 250 additional session employees are brought on staff. The Legislative Building is a modern 184,000 square foot facility and is situated on 12 acres of beautifully-manicured grounds flanked by the State Capitol and Supreme Court.

The Legislative Police serve and protect all legislative employees and property, as well as citizens drawn here by the legislative process. We are an independent agency, working for the legislature, and not a subsidiary of any other state division. We have full-time officers and permanent, part-time intermittent and temporary session officers. While the Legislature is in session, officers work a minimum of 120 days. All officers have extensive law enforcement backgrounds, and many are retired law enforcement officers from around the country.

We have members in the, Nevada Sheriff's and Chief's Association, the National Legislative Services and Security Association (NLSSA), the FBI-Law Enforcement Executive Development Association and the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
