LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – FOX5 has learned the Clark County School District will not appeal a judge’s order to release body camera video of a 2023 incident near Durango High School where a CCSD police officer is seen on cell phone video slamming a student to the ground. Officers handcuffed other students. One student told FOX5 he simply wanted to record the police encounter on his cell phone.

CCSD has refused to release any written details or body camera video since the February 2023 incident, citing juvenile privacy concerns. But on Monday CCSD Superintendent Jesus Jara confirmed to FOX5 the district will not appeal the judge’s order. However, he said the video will be redacted to some extent.

The Clark County School District and CCSD Police issued a joint statement Friday about an incident that occurred Thursday at Durango High School.

The ACLU took CCSD to court to force the district to release the video and written documents. The ACLU represents two students involved in the incident. After the ruling in December, the ACLU said it can “finally look forward to seeing what really happened when our clients were attacked by school district police.”

Back in December, the court ordered CCSD to release the bodycam along with citation information, incident reports and dispatch logs within 30 days.
