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.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
