U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto was in Reno Thursday April 14, 2022 to meet with the region’s law enforcement leaders to discuss her efforts to support Nevada’s law enforcement agencies. The senator said she has long held an interest in supporting police after serving as Nevada’s Attorney General from 2007-2015.
Sen. Cortez Masto was joined by Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam, Reno Police Chief Jason Soto and Sparks Deputy Chief Clinte Bellamy.
The discussion covered a range of topics and local programs – such as the recent purchase of modern radios by the Sparks Police Department. However, much of the conversation centered around mental health for not only law enforcement personnel, but also people who are incarcerated and the general population.
