Markling Exits Nevada Gaming Board

Jerry Markling, who has been chief of the Nevada Gaming Control Board’s enforcement division since 2005, is leaving the agency at the end of August to pursue “a new opportunity in the gaming industry,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Markling has spent 22 years with the board and a total of 43 years in government service, including two decades with the Provo, Utah, police department, where he reached the rank of captain before retiring.

“He’s been an incredible asset to the board and a trusted colleague,” said Gaming Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett. “I have relied on his opinion and advice regarding complicated criminal and gaming regulatory matters, just as four previous chairmen did.”
