Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
Deputy Chief Kelly McMahill has been a Law Enforcement professional with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) for over 24 years. Kelly has held positions in Patrol, Community Oriented Policing, Internal Oversight and Constitutional Policing, Internal Affairs and Human Resources. In 2012, when the Department of Justice entered into an agreement to conduct the first ever Collaborative Reform Process with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Kelly was chosen as the sergeant to assist in the creation of the Office of Internal Oversight and became the main liaison with the Department of Justice. From 2012 through 2014, Kelly was a member of the team that implemented numerous groundbreaking reforms related to the use of deadly force by officers. Many of these reforms are now counted as best practices around the country. In 2013, Kelly promoted to lieutenant and proudly served in the Bolden Area Command where she led efforts in community engagement and crime fighting. In 2015, Kelly was assigned to the Critical Incident Review Team which conducts all administrative investigations of deadly force incidents by officers. In March of 2017, Kelly promoted to captain and was assigned to run the Internal Oversight and Constitutional Policing Bureau which oversees the criminal and administrative investigations into use of deadly force and other high-risk incidents involving LVMPD officers. Kelly was then assigned as the bureau commander of South Central Area Command where she commanded a station of 210 officers and civilians in one of most diverse areas within the Las Vegas valley.
In February of 2020, Sheriff Lombardo appointed Kelly to Deputy Chief of the Professional Standards Division. Currently, she oversees Human Resources, all Department training and the LVMPD volunteer program.

Although Kelly loves working for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, her greatest joy comes from being married to Kevin McMahill, who is the Undersheriff and raising their five children together.
