Attention LVMPD Officers...

Dear LVMPD Officer,

You may wonder why we exist. You may not know what we do. You may think a wives group has little value.

We want you to know why we exist and what we do. We want you to support us so that we can support you!

We exist to provide a safe place where we can connect socially and build friendships with whom we share a common bond. We want to support ALL (yes, we care about our single officers and our lady officers too! ๐Ÿ˜‰) our families in good and bad times, and back you, our LVMPD Officers, with our love, support, and appreciation for the difficult job you do.

When something happens to you, your spouse or children, there is no organization we are aware of that is in place within the local law enforcement community here to assist you, aside from us.

Over the past 8 years, we've been the ones to come along the sides of so many within our metro family. We've done countless mealtrains for the families of our fallen officers, families who've lost a wife or a child, families battling illnesses, families who are welcoming a new addition, families who's officer has been injured in the line of duty, etc. We've done fundraisers for those who've lost their loved one, those battling an illness, and for our fallen officers' families to celebrate significant events in their lives so they know they are loved and remembered. We've provided childcare, cleaned houses, assisted with funeral details, decorations and food, and assisted our department with requests they've made of us, helped with LVMPD family events, and much more.

Last year we saw the need for there to be a nonprofit in place that could raise funds for any law enforcement family in Nevada that had a catastrophic family circumstance. That lead us to expand  our mission of Police Wives of America. Our non profit gives all proceeds directly to  families in need. We work on a 100% volunteer basis, funding our organization independently through an online shop.

We have always done our best to be team players as our community is stronger when we support each other. I don't tout all we've done to ask for your praise, but rather to ask you for your support. Our department is large, and there is no shortage of struggles our families face. With your support, we can together make a difference in the lives of our LVMPD family and we will be stronger and better prepared to face whatever the future may hold.

Please, know that we are always here for ALL of our LVMPD Officers and their families. We back and support you, and we humbly request that you consider doing the same for us.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please, feel free to reach out with any questions you may have.

If you are an officer, will you please take 30 seconds to let your fellow officers know we exist? What will take you 30 seconds will leave a lasting impression on those around you. We'd greatly appreciate it!

God bless you!

Respectfully,
~Deborah Costello
