Las Vegas Police Reserves Hit the Streets

February 01, 2013  | 

As Las Vegas police face tight budget and staffing constraints, hundreds of citizens could hit the streets as armed, volunteer police officers under a new reserve police officer program.

The new program, described by police as an "unpaid, at-will, commissioned volunteer position," requires 420 hours of training, about half the training of a typical officer.

The volunteers, selected from a pool of up to 800 applicants, will then receive 200 hours of Field Training Experience before being placed on active duty alongside a full-time officer for about 20 hours of duty per week.

You got to be kidding me! LV is short on money? I think it's about time the Chief called the casinos and request a donation. Bloody sad. I wish the volunteers well as I do the Uniforms. Blues, stay safe.
