Attorney General Aaron D. Ford to Host Press Conference Regarding Criminal Justice Reform Bills

May 24, 2021


**Save the date for May 25th at 12:00 PST** 

WHO: Attorney General Aaron D. Ford.  

WHAT: May 25th marks the one-year anniversary of the killing of George Floyd. AG Ford will be holding this press conference to commemorate his passing and discuss the progress that has been made with regard to police reform and community response. The press conference will also highlight two of AG Ford’s bills, Assembly Bill (AB) 58 and Senate Bill (SB) 50.

WHEN: The press conference will be held on May 25th at 12:00 PST.

WHERE:The press conference will be held on the front steps of the Carson City Attorney General’s Office, weather permitting. The office is located at 100 N. Carson Street.

DETAILS: Assembly Bill 58 will offer more transparency and accountability regarding Nevada’s law enforcement agencies. The bill gives the Attorney General’s Office the authority to conduct pattern-or-practice investigations and work with police agencies to reform patterns of unlawful policing.

Senate Bill 50 will create a framework that drastically limits no-knock warrants and ensures they are used safely and only when absolutely necessary. As we have seen over recent years, no-knock warrants are becoming an increasing issue, with their use often resulting in injury or death.

NOTES: The press conference will be posted on our social media platforms within two hours of the end time.  Members of the media are encouraged to RSVP in advance via email to
