NEVADA – Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Deputy Chief Jim Seebock announced today the official launch of his campaign for Henderson City Council Ward One.
“As the city continues to mature it must address issues surrounding homelessness, redevelopment needs, and supporting our first responder community so they can stay in front of violent crime trends before they end up here. My focus will be on what I am calling a Public Safety Infrastructure, which is embodied by effective first responders, wise governance that focuses on smart growth, and increased community interaction,” said Seebock. “The City Council must continue to create opportunities for our community members to have an increased voice from HOA’s, neighborhood watch groups, as well as business coalitions and associations. My leadership and experience uniquely qualifies me to be the best candidate to address these big city challenges.”
Seebock has been a Henderson resident since his family moved here in 1986. While growing up, he attended Burkholder Junior High School and graduated from Basic High School. In 1993, he was hired on with LVMPD and was promoted through the ranks to his current position of deputy chief. He held positions of patrol officer, narcotics detective, K-9 handler, K-9 sergeant, counter terrorism lieutenant, and captain-level positions over patrol, training, and SWAT. Seebock’s leadership abilities were recognized by his promotion to deputy chief in 2020, a position in which he currently serves.
