Las Vegas Police Pledge More Communication At Protests

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say they will communicate more with legal observers of protests and communicate more with protesters about dispersal orders after the department received complaints for arrests it made in recent weeks.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says if it issues any dispersal order to protesters, police will communicate it from multiple directions so people can hear more easily.

Officers will also give protesters a clear path to leave the area. The department made the changes after meeting with groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union and Black Lives Matter.
