CSI - Which Department Do They Work For?
On numerous occasions, characters interact with the Sheriff, and when they are at scenes, Las Vegas Sheriffs Deputies can be seen surrounding it and interacting with the characters. But, when they put their little "multi-function vests" on to hold their obligatory flashlights, they have the initials "LVPD" on them, which of course stands for Las Vegas Police Department.

As is the case in most cities, the city police department only has jurisdiction to the city limits and anything that takes place within the county, but outside the city is where the sheriff's dept. takes over. The CSI unit is a seperate group from both of those law enforcement branches so they work everywhere they are needed.

Technically, this isn't a slip-up. Both the Crime Lab and the Sheriff's Department work under the jurisdiction of the Police Department.

Senate Bill 340 was passed and became effective on July 1, 1973. The Las Vegas Police Department and the Clark County Sheriff's Department were deactivated and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department was activated to take their place. The new agency (Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department) would be responsible for all police services within the City limits of the City of Las Vegas and the unincorporated areas of the County of Clark. So in actuallity there is no is in fact LVMPD.
