A months-long investigation has landed a Metro Police officer in jail. According to Metro in Sept. 2018 detectives with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department were made aware of an investigation
involving a person who was on parole.
During the investigation information was obtained that led to interviews with LVMPD patrol officer Rachel Sorkow. Detectives discovered that on multiple occasions, Sorkow utilized criminal justice information systems and distributed that information to unauthorized people.
It was also discovered that there were several interactions with citizens that Sorkow recorded on the camera of a personal phone, which is in violation of department policy. In one of the videos, one person’s private area was also recorded without that person’s knowledge.
As a result of the investigation, Rachel Sorkow was arrested and transported to the Clark County Detention Center where she faces the following charges:
- Misconduct of a public officer (felony – 5 counts)
- Capturing the image of the private area of another person (gross misdemeanor – 1 count)
- Indecent exposure (gross misdemeanor – 1 count)
While Metro detectives investigated, Sorkow was relieved of duty with pay on Dec. 4, 2018.
