A North Las Vegas Police Department employee is being recognized as a national leader in her field.

North Las Vegas Police Department Investigative Specialist Sonia Aispuro was one of 50 people in the United States to be honored by law enforcement technology company Watch Systems, LLC, for her outstanding public service and leadership administering the department's Offender Watch database.

As an NLVPD Department Investigative Specialist, one of Aispuro’s many duties includes managing the city’s sex offender records on Offender Watch.

The sex offender registry software currently has about 15,000 users from 3,000 different police departments across the nation. Aispuro diligently checks sex offender records to make sure they are up to date and verifies that offenders are compliant with the law, which helps keep our neighborhoods safe.

This also allows the department to provide timely and accurate information about convicted sex offenders to the community.

"It is truly an honor to be recognized by Watch Systems and I am very humbled to receive this award,” Aispuro said. "I know I would not have been considered if I didn't have the support of such an amazing team. I am very proud to be part of a Blue Family that is so dedicated to serving our community. This really is a team award.”

Aispuro has served nearly 20 years with the department.
