Dennis N. Griffin, author
Dennis retired in 1994, after a 20-year career in investigations and law enforcement in
New York State. He wrote his first novel, The Morgue, in 1996. He has since written and
published a total of eight mystery/thrillers. In 2001 he turned his attention to nonfiction and began writing Policing Las Vegas â€“ A History of Law Enforcement in Southern Nevada. He currently has nine nonfiction books in print.
The goal of The Transparency Projects is to help families who are survivors of victims of murder or suspicious death, to gain access to police records related to the investigation of the death of their loved one. This will primarily involve making sure the police agency involved is complying in full with the Sunshine or Open Records laws in effect in their particular jurisdiction. It can include filing appeals when requests for records are denied and/or recommending changes to existing laws that are overly restrictive.
