MetroComm, the LVMPD's dispatch center receives over 3 million calls and dispatches officers to nearly 600,000 events per year. Dispatch Explorers use state of the art simulators to learn exactly how to take critical 9-1-1 emergency phone calls and how to send officers to calls for service using the Computer-Aided Dispatch system.


Dispatch Explorers also get first-hand experience as they sit with LVMPD dispatchers and listen in on incoming 9-1-1 and 3-1-1 lines as well as the actual police radio. In addition, Dispatch Explorers work in conjunction with CCDC, CSI and Police Explorers and act as dispatchers during training scenarios.

About the Explorer Program

The LVMPD Explorer Program exposes young adults to a career in law enforcement by matching their interests in four specific areas: Crime Scene Investigation, Corrections, Dispatch, and Police. In addition to the training they receive, the LVMPD Explorer Program also aims to develop and refine qualities such as maturity, responsibility, character, civic duty, and personal fitness.


The LVMPD wants the community it serves to have pride in its police department. It is our goal to proactively police our neighborhoods to prevent crime. We are committed to building strong partnerships with the community to guide us and communicate effectively to ensure the public’s trust. Our dedication to fighting crime and improving the quality of life in Las Vegas includes maintaining the safety of the millions of visitors that Las Vegas hosts each year. - Sheriff Joseph Lombardo
