Welcome to the Community Oriented Policing Unit (COP). Here at the North Las Vegas Police Department (NLVPD), we are committed to maintaining a culture of community policing that all personnel contribute to on a daily basis.

Officers assigned specifically to the COP Unit are responsible for various programs designed to reduce crime, reduce the fear of crime, enhance the relationships within the community, build trust within the community, and to encourage an open dialogue between the community and the Police Department to improve the quality of life for all within the City of North Las Vegas.

COP Unit Programs:

Community Cam Program

Partnership with Neighbors by RING App

The Neighbors App by RING allows all community members to see, post, and engage on posts related to specific crime and safety issues in their neighborhood. You do not have to have a RING device to use this platform. NVLPD has partnered with RING to use their law enforcement portal of the app as a tool to better engage with and inform the community on crime and safety. The app also allows NLVPD to submit video requests to app users for use in investigations. The NLVPD knows the help of the community is integral to solving crime and this app aids in that pursuit. Download the app today to join your neighbors and the NLVPD in the fight against crime.  

R.E.C.A.P. (Rebuilding Every City Around Peace)

R.E.C.A.P. is a Faith-based community and law enforcement partnership that calls for effective intervention and response to a crime or trauma scene in an effort to prevent further violence. Faith-based volunteers who participate in R.E.C.A.P. are activated by law enforcement supervisors in charge of specific crime scenes or incidents. R.E.C.A.P. employs proven methods to combat and neutralize the culture of violence. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for this program please contact us at

S.I.L.A. (Summons In Lieu of Arrest) Program

The S.I.L.A. Program was developed so businesses with a security department or asset protection team could handle low risk, in custody incidents, without police response. After a business has been signed up for the program and received proper training, they can process their own paperwork for misdemeanor violations including trespass, petit larceny, and disturbing the peace. Please contact us if you are a business interested in implementing this program at

Youth Engagement Programs:

Police Explorer Program

PAL (Police Athletic League) Program
