LVMPD Foundation to Unite for Heroism October 22
LAS VEGAS (October 22, 2020) – On Thursday, October 22, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Foundation hosted an in-person and virtual event in celebration of the first-ever Unite for Heroism at the Wynn Las Vegas. Community supporters came together to relive the lifesaving moments and acts of heroism our LVMPD officers perform on a daily basis through a series of real-life bodycam footage and interviews.
The event also highlighted a panel of celebrity heroes who openly discussed topics such as community safety and inclusivity. It included Roxann McCoy, President of NAACP Las Vegas, Regina Coward-Holman, Retired LVMPD Officer, President of the Nevada Black Police Association, and the Region 1 President of the National Black Police Association, and Maxine Jones, American singer (formerly of En Vogue), songwriter, and actress.
“Tonight was a phenomenal night with a tremendous showing of support for our everyday heroes,” said Tom Kovach, executive director of the LVMPD Foundation, “and the unity the community here in Southern Nevada has with law enforcement.”
The event and virtual silent auction raised over $600,000 which will directly support the LVMPD Foundation to fund a myriad of community engagement and public safety programs.
