Check back for information on our 2019 conference November 4-6, 2019!
Sheriff Joe Lombardo has dedicated his entire adult life to law enforcement and public service, rising through the entire ranks from Patrol Officer to Sheriff. Joe’s sole mission – keeping our streets safe.
Lombardo began his career at Metro as a patrolman in 1989. After working his way through the ranks at Metro, and having overseen every Division during his decorated career, Joe was elected Sheriff of Clark County in 2014.
With a hard-earned reputation as a no-nonsense problem solver and Metro’s foremost expert on counter-terrorism, Lombardo has revamped the department’s use-of-force policy and beefed-up efforts to protect the Strip and our economy’s lifeblood.
A 40-year resident of Clark County, Lombardo is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, earned a Bachelor of Science at UNLV and a Master’s in Crisis and Emergency Management from UNLV while working full-time at Metro.
Lombardo honed his leadership skills in the U.S. Military, serving in the U.S. Army, as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Nevada National Guard, and as a 1st Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserve.
Sheriff Joe Lombardo will speak to us about the "1 October" mass killing, and the lessons learned to move forward.
Greg Cassell was appointed Fire Chief on Feb. 17, 2015. A Las Vegas Native, he began his career with the Clark County Fire Department (CCFD) in June of 1989. Throughout his career, Chief Cassell has held the ranks of firefighter/paramedic, fire engineer, fire captain, and battalion chief.
Chief Cassell holds two associate’s degrees from the Community College of Southern Nevada, two bachelor’s degrees from Colorado State University, and graduated from University Medical Center’s Paramedic Program in May of 1989. He has been an instructor of Emergency Medical Service (EMS) topics for both CCFD and the Community College of Southern Nevada (currently the College of Southern Nevada).
The year of 1990 proved to be pivotal for Chief Cassell both personally and professionally. Most important, he married the love of his life, Gina. Together they have two children and a large extended family that resides within Southern Nevada.
This was also the year Chief Cassell became a member of the CCFD Technical Rescue Team, which, at the time, provided paramedic-level support to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Search and Rescue Team. By becoming a member of the department’s rescue team as a young firefighter/paramedic, a dedication was ignited that has grown into 25-plus years of special operations/technical-heavy rescue work. Chief Cassell has utilized his expertise to become a founding member and active participant of the Southern Nevada Unified Command’s Type III Incident Management Team where he serves as an Incident Commander and Operations Section Chief.
Chief Cassell will provide us the intimate details of the difficulty in managing life-saving operations in the hot zone of an active shooting incident.
The times we live in are filled with crime and violence and an ever-increasing number of attacks on non-traditional locations. The vulnerability of our schools, places of worship and entertainment venues presents a very real and very problematic challenge in trying to provide safety for the myriad of locations and circumstances we face as first responders. You might be able to secure and harden a school, but will those same methods apply to a house of worship, or an outdoor concert, or a public building?
We will have Ken Alexandrow and his team from Agape Tactical here to discuss their approach to this growing problem and how they enlist the local churches to help them help themselves without changing the culture of the church body. You will hear how the Agape Tactical team was called upon to provide security and protection for the major-label country artist following the killings in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017. From that, you can plan on how to cooperate with a private security team hired for this type of mission if they come through your jurisdiction.
Ken has a motto: “'Good is the Enemy of Great!' In a critical incident, good can get you killed. Our cadre of instructors are the best in their fields and have over 250 years of combined operator experience in Federal, State, and Local law enforcement, as well as Navy SEALs, Marine Corps, and SWAT."
Join us at this year's FBINAA/NvSCA Annual Conference to learn how we can work better to be GREAT at combating crime and violence together.
This day will be dedicated to the focused training for how to move forward after the big event. We will learn strategies and tactics to deal with the stress placed on our employees and ourselves during and after the critical incident.
Part one: On-scene intervention - Psych First Aid and law Enforcement Community assistance
Part two: Post intervention - Psycho-Education, Debriefing (group and individual), and Follow-up care
The purpose of the annual conference is to provide quality training, profession updates, and networking opportunities to the law enforcement leaders throughout the western states and specifically the State of Nevada.
With the support of our top tier vendors, you will have the opportunity to become familiar with the best law enforcement products and services in the profession.
Not just an opportunity to just sit and listen to quality training, this is your chance to learn face to face from leaders in the profession. The exhibit hall is your chance to hear from experts in law enforcement technology and services and is the best way for you to advance your agency forward.
We will have a hospitality suite every evening for you to relax and share some stories.
And, of course, don't forget about the critically acclaimed banquet Wednesday night! With excellent food and drinks and the prize-filled raffle, this is a night that is always the highlight of the show.
