Thank you to all the community leaders who joined us October 3rd, 2016 at Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai Golf Club for the Inaugural LUNCH WITH THE SHERIFF.
More than 100 guests united to show their support for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and Sheriff Joe Lombardo. Event sponsors included NV Energy, Murphy Electric, Fabulous Freddy’s, Hakkasan, Kaempfer Crowell, and Judge Patricia Leavitt.
Our first ever luncheon surpassed expectations and we are thankful for the participants’ dedication to our community.
Sheriff Lombardo thanked the guests and reminded them of some of the ways their contributions are put to work: funding new shields for officers, bulletproof vests, specialized equipment for units like Search and Rescue, as well as training for officers to keep them ready for the most dangerous calls and responses. Funds donated through the Friends of LVMPD Foundation non-profit organization also help LVMPD continue impactful programs across the County that help keep our roads safer, keep residents informed and alert, and reduce crime. The Sheriff asked guests to support LVMPD and efforts to secure additional funding for MORE COPS, so LVMPD can once again inch toward the industry recommended ratio of officers to citizens.
Keep an eye on our website for your next opportunity to have LUNCH WITH THE SHERIFF. You will join the community and look at the future of community policing, partnering with civic leaders, specialized training and LVMPD equipment.
Together we are making our community a better place to live, work and play.
