Citizen's Patrol

The Volunteers in Police Services (ViPS) Citizen’s Patrol Program consists of civilian volunteers trained to support police functions of the North Las Vegas Police Department.

The primary objective of the ViPS Citizen’s Patrol Program is to prevent crime by mere presence and to identify public hazards. Citizen’s Patrol members act as the eyes and ears of the Police Department by identifying suspicious activities, crimes in progress, or dangerous circumstances. Citizen’s Patrol members do not take action themselves, but notify the proper authorities for handling of a situation. They are trained to recognize and report suspicious activity without getting directly involved.

Citizens interested in participating in the ViPS Citizen’s Patrol Program must meet the following requirements:

● 21 years of age
● Possess a valid driver’s license
● Pass a thorough background check
● Prefer persons who live or work within the City of North Las Vegas

Click Here to fill out an interest card. Interest cards submitted are collected and held for the next training session. A representative from the Community Services Division will contact you.
