LAS VEGAS – The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Nevada today issued the following statement from United States Attorney Jason M. Frierson:

“On this day one year ago, I had the honor of taking an oath to serve as the United States Attorney for the District of Nevada.

“Over the past 12 months, the dedicated, talented Assistant United States Attorneys and professional staff have worked diligently with our law enforcement partners to support and advance the Justice Department’s mission of upholding the rule of law, keeping our communities safe, and protecting civil rights.

“I have traveled throughout the Silver State to meet with and talk to law enforcement, community groups, victim service providers, and Tribal Governments to strengthen our partnerships.

“As we move forward in 2023, the District of Nevada is building on these partnerships and following our strategic plan to prevent and reduce violent and gun crimes; combat human trafficking and child sex trafficking; fight the opioid and fentanyl crisis; protect Nevada’s environmental resources; seek justice for victims; defend the United States in civil matters; and keep our neighborhoods safe for all to live and work. Additionally, the District of Nevada continues to provide trainings to law enforcement and engage in community outreach opportunities at schools, community centers, and events.

“Last but certainly not least, I want to extend my gratitude to each Assistant United States Attorney and professional staff in our Las Vegas and Reno offices; to all levels of state, local, federal, and Tribal law enforcement; to Tribal Governments; and to the various community and victim advocate groups for working in the joint pursuit of Justice for all. I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together for Nevada.”
