Welcome to David Roger’s Law Library


Retired District Attorney David Roger has worked with police officers for over 28 years. After his retirement, David was recruited and hired by the Las Vegas Police Protection Association. As General Counsel, David represents approximately 2800 Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Officers and Las Vegas City Marshalls.

This website is intended to be a legal resource for Nevada Peace Officers. Because interpretations of the law may vary, you are encouraged to review these opinions with your department administration and legal counsel. LVPPA members will receive e-mailed updates. Other law enforcement officers are invited to follow David on his Twitter account @DavidRogerLVPPA.

I hope that you will find this website helpful with researching legal issues you may face as a police officer. The Law Library section includes various links to legal websites. You will be able to access state statutes, city and county ordinances, federal codes and legal search engines.

The Legal Opinion area catalogs all of the research memos you have received over the years. I will update the section regularly.

We also created a mobile version of this site for easy access on your smartphone.

Finally, please contact me with your legal issues. I will attempt to answer your questions as time permits.
