Nevada Public Safety Director Resigns

Governor Gibbons' statement regarding the resignation of Phil Galeoto from the Department of Public Safety

"Phil Galeoto performed above and beyond the call of duty as director of the department of public safety.

Nevada greatly benefited from his leadership and i thank him for his tireless efforts to make nevada a better and safer place to live.

I am proud that under his direction, we were able to establish stricter registration requirements for sex offenders, including gps tracking of the most dangerous offenders.

We were also able to provide critical assistance in emergency situations here in nevada as well as for our neighboring states, including the angora fire and the fernley levee breach.

I wish director Galeoto the best in his future endeavors."-
