Here's an announcement from Metro about First Tuesday, coming up on Oct. 6.
Metro encourages the public to implement crime prevention measures. On Tuesday, October 6, 2009, the topic for the First Tuesday programs will be Crime Prevention. Each area command will offer safety tips to participants. Topics will vary from area command to area command based on the needs of the local neighborhood. Sample topics include home security, locksmith scams, and tourist safety.
On the first Tuesday of every month, each LVMPD Area Command hosts a “First Tuesday” program for the public. The First Tuesday programs always start at 7:00 p.m. and include a free lecture about a law enforcement topic. Issues pertinent to local neighborhoods are also discussed.
The purpose of the First Tuesday program is to make the police department more accessible to the public, and to encourage citizens to visit their neighborhood area command.
The public and the media are welcome to attend any First Tuesday program; there will be one at each LVMPD area command.
For the exact crime prevention topics that will be discussed at your local area command, please contact the area command and ask for the Crime Prevention Specialist or Community Oriented Police Officer.
