The Nevada System of Higher Education, Northern Nevada University Police Services has been awarded the 2018 Cashman Good Government Award, presented annually by the Nevada Taxpayers Association (NTA). The Award was presented by NTA Board Member Tim Cashman during the Association’s Annual Meeting and Luncheon in Las Vegas on February 28, 2018.
The Award was established in 1997 to recognize superior stewardship of taxpayer dollars by government employees and/or agencies. Nominees can be any non-elected, full-time employee, team or department that has gone beyond the normal scope of their job duties to achieve efficiency and savings in Nevada’s state or local governments, including school districts and the Nevada System of Higher Education.
The NSHE Board of Regents directed the University of Nevada, Reno to take the lead to consolidate police services at UNR, the Desert Research Institute, and Truckee Meadows Community College. The process enhances safety, provides 24/7 full police coverage on all campuses, and standardizes policies, procedures and administration of police services. The consolidation, now in its second year, has accomplished all of its stated goals, including a savings to taxpayers of $641,225 in its first year and a projected savings of $4.5 million will be realized over the first decade of consolidation. ...
