If you attended Mesquite Night Out, you saw Mesquite Police and other first responders reach out to young people and educate them about public safety. MPD is big on community involvement through Cops and Pops, Shop with a Cop, Grad Night, Golf for Kids, Trunk or Treat – and other fun events.
As the gateway to Southern Nevada from Utah and Arizona, our officers act as the front line and anchor for Clark County. MPD handles more than 22,000 calls a year and over 1,000 custody arrests. These are the same types of calls and crimes that every major city handles. Battery, Burglary, Traffic Collisions, Theft, Fraud, Forgery, Sexual Misconduct, Weapon Offenses, and the occasional Homicide. Felony arrests have risen drastically in the past few years.
Between 2015 until now, their calls of service incidents in patrol have doubled.
