LVMPD in the running for national award
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is in the running for a national award for the way it deals with school violence.
It's one of six finalists for the Herman Goldstein Award from the Center for Problem Oriented Policing.
The award recognizes police departments that develop programs that work.
Metro's program began in 2008 after Christopher Privett was shot while walking home from Palo Verde High School.
