The first act undertaken by an LVMPD officer is to swear under oath his or her dedication to serve and protect our community. Each day our officers put their lives on the line. This section honors those officers whose dedication led them to perform great acts of heroism.

Included in these pages are the LVMPD officers who have died in the line of duty. Each year we honor their bravery with the Southern Nevada Law Enforcement Memorial service in the month of May.
