The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Foundation is orchestrating a marquee takeover on January 9 for Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (LEAD) to honor Southern Nevada’s hardworking law enforcement professionals.
Strip resorts, downtown properties, and businesses around the valley will illuminate messages of appreciation on their iconic marquees and building facades in blue light to express their support of Metro on January 9 at 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Multiple agencies created National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day in 2015 for the public to express gratitude to law enforcement officers throughout the U.S.
While LEAD is officially just one calendar day, the LVMPD Foundation shows its support year-round for LVMPD through many initiatives and partnerships to strengthen the relationship and build trust between LVMPD officers and the Southern Nevada residents they serve. The Foundation funds flagship community engagement events like National Night Out and programs including the Back-to-School initiative, which provides at-risk students with the tools to succeed in school; the Good Ticket program to recognize the display of humanity and compassion by Metro officers and civilian personnel; and the Reality Based Training Center on the campus of the Joint Emergency Training Institute.
The community is urged to show their gratitude and appreciation to LVMPD officers by giving to the LVMPD Foundation by texting LEAD2024 to 41444.
Fremont Street Experience will feature a special presentation at Third Street Stage under the canopy.
