​The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department offers a wide variety of programs designed to get citizens involved in their community. Whether it's something as simple as a Neighborhood Watch program or something more hands-on, like the Citizens' Police Academy, the LVMPD encourages everyone to play a part in making Las Vegas safe for its citizens and visitors.​

The LVMPD We Care booklet is provided as additional information for local resources.  WeCareBooklet_logo.jpg
