LAS VEGAS -- The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has an opportunity for residents to join a newly developed Reserve Police Officer program to train and work alongside Metro officers.

This is an unpaid, at-will and commissioned volunteer position performing police work in any of LVMPD’s patrol areas.

Applications will be accepted beginning Wednesday, January 30 and remain open until 800 applications are received, or Wednesday, February 20, whichever occurs first.

Reserve Police Officers are required to volunteer a minimum of 20 hours each month and attend additional training, in order to remain current on law enforcement and Department policies and procedures.

LVMPD operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Reserve Police Officers will be assigned to an area and shift based upon operational need and the availability of each individual.

Applicants will participate in a selection process, which includes a background check, similar to that administered by LVMPD for Police Recruit.

Once successfully completed, applicants will then participate in a 420-hour Reserve Police Officer Academy and a 200-hour Field Training Program.

Upon successful completion of requirements Reserve Officers will receive their commissioned status and a basic State of Nevada Reserve Officer POST Certificate.

For full details and requirements regarding this new program, visit the LVMPD Reserve Police Officer web page.
