Welcome to Las Vegas Sign Goes ´True Blue'  to Support Law Enforcement

Clark 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.

“The Go True Blue campaign gives us all an opportunity to show our support and appreciation for our law enforcement professionals,” Commissioner Michael Naft said. “Several resorts will be turning their marquees blue to show their support, and we encourage everyone to wear blue this month to help support this effort.”

“Metro Police and all the police departments in our community protect and serve millions of residents and visitors with dedication and professionalism,” Commissioner Justin Jones said. “Go blue this month to show your support for everything they do to keep us all safe.”

“Effective law enforcement is key to a safe community,” said Commissioner Ross Miller, “and I urge my fellow Las Vegans to wear blue and show your support for Metro and the work that they do to enforce our laws and bolster our quality of life.”

“While Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is officially just one calendar day, we promote the Go True Blue campaign throughout the entire year to show gratitude to our officers for all they do,” said Tom Kovach, Executive Director of the LVMPD Foundation. “Thanks to the generous support from many organizations and individuals, the Foundation works to advance community engagement initiatives that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department does for our community.”
