The Nevada Attorney General’s Office is committed to restoring the public trust in government. We investigate and prosecute crimes committed by state employees and officials in the course of their duties, crimes referred by the District Attorneys’ Offices due to conflict of interest, and crimes related to violations of elections and campaign laws.
Public misconduct cases investigated and prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office include charges of theft, possession of child pornography, receiving bribes, welfare and food stamp fraud, embezzlement, carrying a concealed firearm, oppression under color of office, and misconduct by a public officer.
