LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – Sheriff Joe Lombardo will be on hand Tuesday night on October 3 to kick off National Night Out at Fremont East District–one of seven large events being hosted by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Area Commands valley-wide.
LVMPD will team up with neighbors from around the Las Vegas Valley to host the community based program that started with residents leaving their porch lights on and grew into a national show of neighborhood unity and pride. National Night Out events are designed to:
*Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
