    Uniformed Patrol

    The foundation of law enforcement. Police Officers begin their careers here; some make it a life's work. Many consider it the most exciting aspect of law enforcement for its unpredictable, ever changing nature. Patrol officers interact closely with community members to solve and prevent crimes.


    As with any progressive police department, NLVPD assigns more officers to Patrol than any other division. Special assignments within patrol include Motors and the Problem Solving Unit (PSU).

    Patrol is the backbone of policing. Officers are the first level of contact with the criminal justice system for victims, suspects, witnesses and the general public. Our officers enjoy a high degree of public support due to the organization's philosophy which allows officers great discretion in the way they patrol their designated beats. Officers are expected to know the public they serve and to employ innovation and imagination in the way they do their jobs.

    Salary: $54,684 to $81,123

    Benefits:

    Shift & Assignment Differential Pay;
    6% Graveyard Shift
    4 % Swing Shift
    8% Special Assignment (PSU, and Department Training Officer)
    Four 10-Hour Days

    I think it all boils down to personal preference. IMHO, neither department is any better than the other, but they do have differences. LVMPD wears tan and isn't a pure city police agency - we handle both county and city and have a Sheriff.

      Both are top notch agencies with good and bad points like any dept. LVMPD is bigger so theres more opportunites to promote and do different assignments. NLVPD pays a little bit more to start, but they both top out around the same...

        Seeing that i was an Explorer with LVMPD i guess i could give my view. As an Explorer I had a blast training was fun concerning the Explorer post in preparing us to be LEO and I've always had fun during ride along. I have raised in North Las Vegas Police Department and well have seen them in action, I spent 2 years as an Explorer but i have chosen to work for North Las Vegas hopeful going to the academy in March. Both agencies i have seen back each other up on calls. Again there isn't much of a difference in agencies but pay,size and uniform color. Training, community goals, and all are all the same.

          What ever dept hires you is the best, and seeing NLVPD isn't hiring then it is obvious for now.

            Even though each department has it's pro's and con's the only thing that matters is who's hiring. If you want a LE career right now you don't have the luxury of being picky on which one to test for. Test for all and see what happens. I was lucky enough to get on NLV before the hard times hit. Good luck!
