Additionally, Explorers learn how to use equipment in the LVMPD Crime Lab to perform tests on items found at a crime scene including fingerprints, hair, tissue, and blood samples.


During ride alongs with LVMPD Crime Scene Analysts, CSI Explorers respond to actual crime scenes throughout the Las Vegas valley and see exactly how they're processed.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is committed to our mission to protect the community through prevention, partnership and professional service. That commitment and dedication extends to the millions of visitors that Las Vegas plays host to each year. I'm devoted to making what I believe is the best police department in the country even better. - Sheriff Doug Gillespie
