Griffin and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. from the 1970s through the mid-1980s, the chicago outfit dominated organized crime in las vegas. to ensure the smooth flow of cash, the gangsters installed a front man with no criminal background, allen r. glick, as the casino owner of record, frank “lefty” rosenthal as the real boss of casino operations, and tony spilotro as the ultimate enforcer, who’d do whatever it took to protect their interests. it wasn’t long before spilotro, also in charge of vegas street crime, was known as the “king of the strip.” federal and local law enforcement, recognizing the need to rid the casinos of the mob and shut down spilotro’s rackets, declared war on organized crime. the battle for las vegas relates the story of the fight between the tough guys on both sides, told in large part by the agents and detectives who knew they had to win.

Description : Read Now Policing Las Vegas by Dennis N. Griffin and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. after being established in 1905 as a railroad town, most of las vegas' population was made up of tough railroaders, ranchers, and miners who worked, drank, and fought hard. sam gay, the first police chief, as well as the first elected county sheriff, broke up the numerous scuffles by grabbing the combatants by the scruff of their necks and banging their heads together--it was the beginning of a long legacy of law and order in america's most explosive boomtown. over the years, las vegas left behind its rough and tumble beginnings to become the gambling and entertainment capital of the world. naturally, the influx of residents and visitors--and their money--brought crime. from prostitutes to street gangs, mobsters to drug dealers, robbers to cheats, sin city has seen it all. and law-enforcement efforts have had to adapt accordingly. policing las vegas follows the evolution of law enforcement in las vegas and clark county from the days of night watchmen and cops who carted drunks to jail on horseback to today's acclaimed metropolitan police department. the transition wasn't always smooth. there were plenty of power struggles, political battles, and rogue cops. but there were also many acts of valor and heroism, and a number of officers made the ultimate sacrifice. this book is filled with stories about the colorful characters and events on both sides of las vegas law enforcement: cops and criminals, deeds and misdeeds. they're drawn from history, legend, and the personal accounts of many people who policed las vegas.policing las vegas also contains more than 100 photographs, some of which are being made public for the first time.
