LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Another high ranking Las Vegas Metro police official appears to be leaving the department and is set to join the new SLS Las Vegas casino.

A spokesperson with Metro confirmed Friday Assistant Sheriff Greg McCurdy is stepping down. According to the LVMPD website, McCurdy has led the department's Homeland Security and Investigations and Support Group since 2011.

McCurdy appears to be headed for a position at SLS Las Vegas, which is the property that will take over the space once known as the Sahara hotel-casino.

A spokesperson with SLS Las Vegas confirmed McCurdy's hiring as vice president of corporate security.

In announcing his new position, McCurdy, through SLS Las Vegas, gave the following statement:

"My 30+ years with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept. have been incredible and without question the most rewarding chapter of my career. During that time, I've had the privilege of forging relationships throughout the community that enabled me to extend my commitment to serving the people of Clark County in a meaningful manner. And while that chapter of my career has come to a close, I'm honored to join the sbe family as the Vice President of Corporate Security at SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Just like the brilliant and compassionate team I've been working with in the LVMPD these past decades, the SLS Las Vegas team also includes a group of equally as talented and dedicated individuals."

McCurdy's announcement follows Sheriff Doug Gillespie's intention not to seek a third term as Metro's top cop.

According to Metro, McCurdy, who was born and raised in Las Vegas, is a 30-year veteran of the department.
