Best of the Badge Gala

Like many communities around the nation, Southern Nevada is facing hardship. The increase in service demands of LVMPD during the pandemic has had a severe impact on existing resources.  As the crisis continues to keep most of us at home, our LVMPD heroes do not have the option of working remotely and face the challenges of implementing social distancing, working through child-care options and other daily life issues, all while continuing to serve. 

The Best of the Badge Gala Ceremony honors dedicated officers who save lives, risk theirs, and make a difference in our community.  We share the dramatic and sometimes harrowing stories that have earned our top cops a commendation.  These are officers who represent the “Best of the Badge.”

The Best of the Badge Gala for 2020 has been canceled due to Covid-19 restrictions. We will resume in 2021 to honor all our amazing nominees!
