The Foundation’s Good Ticket program was designed in collaboration with and initially proposed by Sydney Ramenofsky, a member of the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada. The program provides citizens the opportunity to nominate an LVMPD officer for a Good Ticket when they see them doing a good deed, as well as allows officers to give Good Tickets to civilians seen doing something positive in the community. The first Good Tickets, sponsored by Caesars Entertainment, were issued to nine LVMPD officers at The LINQ Promenade and included staycations at Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas resorts and complimentary rides on the High Roller.
“Go True Blue is a way to recognize and support the officers who, day-in and day-out, work hard to keep our community safe. It’s a vehicle for the members of this great community to show their support for LVMPD and the strong partnership that exists between the public and Metro,” said Tom Kovach, executive director of the LVMPD Foundation. “The Good Ticket takes that support one step further by allowing citizens to give a Good Ticket to officers for every day ‘good deeds’ that sometimes go unrecognized and by giving officers the opportunity to hand out Good Tickets to civilians for doing something good and not just only when they’ve done something wrong.”
The Good Ticket program continues to expand and is now sponsored by SilverSummit Healthplan, Caesars Entertainment and the Las Vegas Aces. The campaign is part of an effort to encourage further support from the community for LVMPD through the LVMPD Foundation which raises funds to support and supplement LVMPD programs and initiatives including advanced officer training, updated equipment and more.
