Metro’s Decoy Dummy, Used in DTLV Murder Investigation, at The Mob Museum Sept. 19

 

THE MOB MUSEUM TO HOST ANATOMY OF A POLICE STING: PANEL
DISCUSSION ON DECOY DUMMY USED TO CAPTURE ALLEGED PERPETRATOR
OF TWO DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS MURDERS

– One-time-only event to take place Tuesday, Sept. 19, 7 p.m.
– CPR dummy used in sting to be on display during discussion.
– Event preceded by “Photo Op with a Cop” from 4 – 6 p.m., allowing families to meet police officers who patrol downtown neighborhoods.

The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, invites the public to learn the gripping and groundbreaking story of how Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) used innovative policing and high-tech surveillance to catch a murder suspect in Downtown Las Vegas. On Tuesday, September 19, at 7 p.m., the Museum will host a panel discussion, moderated by the Museum’s Senior Director of Content Geoff Schumacher, about the decoy sting. For this event only, the actual CPR dummy used to capture the alleged perpetrator will be on display.

Panelists will include LVMPD police captain Andrew Walsh, supervisor of the Downtown Area Command; Marc DiGiacomo, chief district attorney, Clark County; and Homicide Detective Ryan Jaeger.

“We enjoy an ongoing, collaborative relationship with our largest local law enforcement agency and this successful sting represents an interesting example of their recent crime-stopping initiatives,” says Schumacher. “The Museum looks forward to providing a forum where the public can hear directly from those involved about this unique case.”

About the Incident
After two homeless men were murdered in Downtown Las Vegas earlier this year, the LVMPD had no leads or suspects. Motivated to solve the case, Walsh and his squad dressed up a CPR dummy, wrapped it in blankets and placed it in a sleeping position in the same area where the murders occurred. They watched the dummy for three weeks and nothing happened.

Eventually, however, surveillance cameras captured a man approaching the dummy and attacking it with a hammer. Shane Schindler, 30, later pleaded guilty to attempted murder and was sentenced to 8 to 20 years in prison.

The event will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

Photo Op with a Cop, 4 – 6 p.m.
Preceding the panel discussion, the Museum will host a new event, “Photo Op with a Cop,” to promote stronger bonds, develop deeper relationships and build trust between the LVMPD officers and the neighborhoods they serve and protect. Held behind the Museum and presented in partnership with LVMPD’s Downtown Area Council, the event will allow families the chance to take photographs with patrol vehicles and officers. In addition, Pinups for Patriots will also be on hand for photos with a vintage police car. The first 10 people who attend Photo Op with a Cop on September 19 will receive free admission; all guests after the first 10 will receive $5 off admission.

Gordie Brown Honors the Work of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department with Special Offers

Gordie Brown

Gordie Brown Honors the Work of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department with Special Offers
Now through June 30, 2016, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department employees who present their employee ID will receive special BOGO tickets


Longtime Las Vegas entertainer Gordie Brown will celebrate the work of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department with a very special offer for its employees. Now through June 30, 2016, LVMPD employees who present an employee ID at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas Box Office are eligible to receive a buy one, get one ticket offer for any Gordie Brown performance through the end of June. Officers who present a badge at the Box Office will receive a complimentary pair of tickets for shows May 15-21, 2016, in honor of National Police Week.

“Each day, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department members risk their lives to protect our community,” said Gordie Brown. “As a token of appreciation for that service, we’d like to extend these special offers to show our gratitude.”

Established by a joint resolution by Congress in 1962, National Police Week recognizes the service and sacrifice of U.S. law enforcement and gives special recognition to officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of the communities they serve.

Gordie, who has performed in Las Vegas for more than 27 years, began headlining at Golden Nugget Las Vegas in February 2009 in the state-of-the-art theater now known as The Gordie Brown Showroom, following a North American tour with Celine Dion. A multitalented entertainer, Gordie has long brought to life performance legends including Presley, Sammy Davis Jr., and Arnold Schwarzenegger alongside a five-piece live band.

A native of Montreal, Canada, Gordie moved to Las Vegas with the goal of working with fellow Canadians Paul Anka and Rich Little. The gamble paid off and before he knew it, he was opening for both Anka and Little. Gordie went on to work with other stars including Jay Leno, Louie Anderson, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Barry Manilow, and Jerry Seinfeld, before opening up his own headlining show.
