The FBI Las Vegas Field Office selected The Mob Museum for the 2021 Director’s Community Leadership Award. This special award was formally created in 1990 to honor individuals and organizations for their efforts in combating crime, terrorism, drugs and violence in America.
The award was presented on behalf of the Director of the FBI to recognize the Museum’s commitment to community, educating the public, promoting awareness and convening important conversations about law enforcement concerns and safety issues facing the state of Nevada.
The Museum has hosted a number of public events over the last 10 years to advance the public understanding of organized crime’s history and impact on American society.
Museum President and CEO Jonathan Ullman, Board of Directors Chair Steve Martinez and Oscar Goodman accepted the award during the Museum’s quarterly Board of Directors meeting.
“The Museum is proud of its relationship with local and federal law enforcement agencies. In particular, the Museum has always enjoyed strong ties with the FBI’s Las Vegas field office,” said Ullman.
“I’m so proud to present this award to The Mob Museum – a true gem in the city of Las Vegas,” said Spencer Evans, special agent in charge of the Las Vegas field office.
