Stay cool this weekend — by meeting police officers

Updated June 13, 2024 - 1:01 pm

As the valley deals with temperatures that have already set records this summer, the North Las Vegas Police Department is offering people a way to stay cool and meet the folks behind the badge.

The police department is holding its first-ever Badge Splash Summer Bash on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. at the Silver Mesa Pool on Allen Lane.

The bash will feature games, food, music and a HeyDude shoe giveaway.

Officials say the goal of the event — in addition to helping people stay cool — is to give North Las Vegas children a chance to interact with police officers in a friendly, relaxed way.
