Lozich named to homeland security commission

(AP) – Gov. Jim Gibbons has appointed MGM Mirage security director Tom Lozich to the Nevada Commission on Homeland Security.

Gibbons announced the appointment Wednesday.

Lozich joined MGM Mirage after retiring from a 30-year career with Las Vegas police, where he rose through the ranks to become assistant sheriff.

The 19-member commission advises the governor on homeland security issues and focuses on prevention, detection, and deterrence of terrorism.
