Presentation: Olivia Cheche and Peter Grema

Olivia Cheche (Political Science) and Peter Grema (Economics) presented their research at the 2021 Western Regional Honors Council Virtual Conference, last week. Cheche's research on "The Culture of Policing in Las Vegas" presents national and local data on disparities related to the racial, social, and fiscal aspects within the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's current culture of policing. Grema presented research on "Venture Capital in Nevada," focusing on the market value of investments held by venture capital funds in Nevada and how the state compares to the rest of the Mountain West (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah). Both students are pursuing a Brookings Public Policy minor.
