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.
