This week, the RTC was proud to play a small part in a ceremony honoring the first Black police officer in Las Vegas history – Herman Moody.

Along with a police escort, we helped transport Mr. Moody from his home to the Clark County Commission Chambers, where Commissioner William McCurdy II presented him with a proclamation for his service.

Mr. Moody joined the then-named Las Vegas Police Department in 1946, where he served for 31 years. The police academy didn’t exist then, so he taught himself about Nevada law and the court system. He paved the way for many more Black officers after him.

During Black History Month, we honor Mr. Moody’s contributions to our community and are pleased we could help get him to his celebration. Watch the video below to see more.
