LAS VEGAS -- Less than 24 hours after publicly announcing he was considering running for Clark County sheriff, North Las Vegas Police Sergeant Tim Bedwell has removed himself from the race.
Bedwell is the public spokesman for North Las Vegas Police. He also led the city's team in Carson City this past legislative session pushing for the "more cops" tax.
Bedwell told the I-Team he plans to stick with North Las Vegas through its remaining challenges.
Sheriff Doug Gillespie announced in August he will not seek another term.
Five people have announced their candidacy so far.
