The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Foundation has a full calendar of March events, including the Fifth Annual Hidden Heroes Black and White Gala on Friday, March 4; K-9 Trials on Saturday, March 20; and the Fifth Annual Wonder Women of Metro Luncheon on Tuesday, March 29.
The LVMPD Foundation and The Gratitude Project hosts the Fifth Annual Hidden Heroes Black and White Gala on Friday, March 4, 2022 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The Hidden Heroes Gala celebrates and recognizes LVMPD Hidden Heroes who work to keep our citizens safe every day. These Hidden Heroes might not wear a badge, but they are committed to their community.
Presented by The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the 2022 Hidden Hero is Fusion Watch, a 24/7 real-time crime center situated in the LMVPD Fusion Center. Fusion Watch is a virtual crime fighting unit responsible for the development and deployment of advanced technologies to prevent crime and terrorism across the Las Vegas Valley. Fusion Watch operates under the mantra that one officer behind a keyboard can be equivalent to three or more officers on the street and is responsible for proactive policework and patrol watch via their network of 600+ public safety cameras.
Started in 2018 in collaboration with The Gratitude Project, the Hidden Heroes Gala benefits the LVMPD Foundation by raising important funds for LVMPD programs. For tickets and sponsor information click Hidden Heroes | Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation (lvmpdfoundation.org)
