County Commissioners and representatives from The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation turned the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign blue today in support of the Foundation’s Go True Blue for law enforcement campaign.
“Metro Police officers serve and protect our residents and visitors in the remote rural corners of our County, in our challenged inner-city neighborhoods, and on one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world,” Commissioner William McCurdy II said.
“The Go True Blue campaign gives us the opportunity to show how much we appreciate and support our police officers. It also gives us the chance to thank the Metro Police Foundation for the great work they do, raising money to help support police programs and initiatives,” Commissioner Michael Naft said.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation was established in 1999 as the official fundraising nonprofit that supports the police department. Donations to the LVMPD Foundation help fund Metro Police-related programs that prevent crime, save lives, and make our County a safer place to live, work and play.
