Community Safety Forum: Preventing Violent Extremism

Date: June 6, 2021
Time: 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Cost: Free for Museum Members or with Museum Admission

As national leaders warn of a growing threat of violent extremism in the United States, law enforcement agencies are addressing local concerns. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Counter Terrorism Section (CTS) is responsible for preventing terrorism and mass casualty attacks in Southern Nevada. Detective Sergeant Ashton Packe will discuss efforts to prevent acts of violence carried out by individuals or groups motivated by an extremist ideology.

Each month, The Mob Museum partners with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and other local agencies to host Community Safety Forums – free public programs focused on pertinent issues that affect Southern Nevada. Thanks to NV Energy, pre-registered guests are given free admission to the Museum following the event. The Mob Museum will also provide a recording of this presentation on its website.
