November 12, 1957
Deputy Sheriff George Hart was appointed to the Clark County Sheriff's Department on July 5, 1956.
Deputy Hart's short-lived career met a tragic end on October 25, 1957, barely one year following his employment.
While booking a drunk prisoner that he had arrested, the prisoner struck Deputy Hart in the stomach area. Due to complications resulting from the blow, Hart succumbed to the injury on November 12, 1957, at 40 years of age.
He was survived by his wife and five children.
