LVMPD Patrol uniforms
As the name indicates, the VIVA Patrol is available to answer tourists' questions as well as to assist in safety and crime issues.
The VIVA Patrol is a detail under the LVMPD's Metro Volunteer Program (MVP)
The VIVA Patrol is seeking individuals with good communication skills who would like to serve as police ambassadors to our community's 40 million-plus annual visitors. All applicants will undergo background checks and successful candidates will be given 16 hours of training in patrol functions, tourist information and crime prevention. Uniforms and equipment will be provided.
We have the VIVA Patrol on the Las Vegas Strip and at Harry Reid International Airport.

The facility is designed for officers to conveniently interact with visitors and residents as the walk along the Strip.
