2019 Burning Man Post-Mission Synopsis (Sheriff’s Report)

Pershing County Sheriff Jerry Allen has released his Post-Mission synopsis for 2019.

The relationship between the Burning Man Project and the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office is described as “extremely toxic”.

2019-PMS-1

Burners should be aware that all police on Playa are now mandated by law to wear body cameras. You might think you’re in the middle of nowhere having a transformational experience and being whoever you want to be – but you are being recorded.

Police are required at the festival for longer than just the 8 days the gates are open. This year there was a sexual assault during the city build, as well as someone reporting a sexual assault from the previous year.

  1. The only assaults and battering I’ve seen on the playa have come from DPW, and one spun-out gate guy. If staff and volunteers need protection it’s probably because they’re a bunch of assholes.
