Former Clark County assistant sheriff announces for top job


Former Assistant Sheriff Ted Moody on Wednesday night told the Review-Journal that he’s running for Clark County sheriff in next year’s election.

Moody, who was the co-chairman of the Use of Force Board, retired from the Metropolitan Police Department in July after nearly 30 years of service following Sheriff Doug Gillespie’s decision to not follow the board’s recommendation to fire officer Jacquar Roston, who shot an unarmed man in November.

In an August interview with the Review-Journal, Moody, 52, said that a trustworthy review process separates good cops from the small minority of bad cops.

Last week, Gillespie announced that he would not seek a third term as sheriff.

Since then, two others have announced their candidacy: retired Las Vegas police officer and Las Vegas constable Robert “Bobby G” Gronauer and Las Vegas police officer Laurie Bisch.
