Downtown Street to be Renamed in Honor of Slain Officer

 

A federal court security guard killed in the line of duty will have a downtown street named in his honor.

The Las Vegas City Council and the U.S. Marshals Service will host a ceremony to rename Chef Andre Rochat Place to Stanley W. Cooper Place at 11 a.m. Thursday. The ceremony will take place at the corner of Sixth Street and Chef Andre Rochat.

Stanley Cooper was working as a court security officer inside the Lloyd D. George Federal Courthouse when he was shot and killed on Jan. 4, 2010, by a lone gunman who entered the courthouse and opened fire. Cooper became a federal court security officer in 1994, after retiring with 26 years of service with Metro Police.

The street that will be named for Cooper is currently known as Chef Andre Rochat Place. Rochat, a longtime Las Vegas resident and restaurateur, agreed to allow the street to be renamed for Cooper. Rochat’s restaurant, Andre’s, was previously located at the corner of Sixth and Andre Rochat, but has since moved to the Monte Carlo.
