Working with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, IRE has established the Jeff German Fund for Investigative Journalism to help continue the kind of game-changing reporting German was known for.
German, a veteran journalist who had worked at the Review-Journal since 2010, was killed at home
Sept. 2. Police have charged a county official
who was the subject of German's investigative reporting with murder in his death.Donations
to the fund will provide journalists with training in investigative reporting at various levels.
German, 69, covered organized crime, politics and public corruption. He was an early member of IRE, attending the San Diego conference in 1981, and was an active member at the time of his death.
