Our speaker: Governor Lombardo was born at an Air Force base in Misawa, Japan, where his family was stationed. Before returning to the U.S., the Governor, at a young age, traveled, lived, and grew up at U.S. military bases in Italy, Germany, and Spain. The family finally moved to Las Vegas, and after graduating from Rancho High School in 1980, Lombardo paid his way through UNLV by joining the military, accepting his enlistment, and joining the university’s Reserve Officers Training Corps. After graduating with a Bachelor in Civil Engineering, he served in the U.S. Army and the Nevada National Guard. 

Following his military service, Governor Lombardo joined the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), where he quickly rose through the ranks and served on nearly every level of LVMPD. While at Metro, he also earned a master’s degree in crisis management at UNLV. He became an Assistant Sheriff in 2011 and was elected Sheriff in 2014.
