Judge bans overtime scam for Las Vegas cops

A Clark County district judge issued a temporary restraining order Thursday that prohibits the Metropolitan Police Department from forcing officers to work overtime.

The Las Vegas Police Protective Association sought the restraining order in a lawsuit filed Oct. 31 against the department. The complaint made no mention of the more than 50,000 overtime hours logged by the agency in the aftermath of the Oct. 1 massacre.

The complaint instead highlighted an ongoing issue of forced overtime by the Police Department, including an August decision requiring correctional officers to work overtime due to reduced staffing. The union also claims Metro forced mandatory overtime on Halloween.
