Officer Mike MartinMentor and Trainer

    Officer Martin became a police officer with LVMPD in 2004. He routinely participates at community events. While in the South Central Community Policing Unit he participated in; Take Back the City, National Night Out, Back to school back pack drive, Easter and Halloween events, 3-on-3 youth basketball, youth P.O.W.E.R. football camp, and HOPE for Prisoners. Officer Martin believes that, by reaching out to the members in the Las Vegas Community he can understand the needs of the community first hand.

    HOPE for Prisoners has shown that; there are people that have made mistakes in their lives for which they are not proud of and they want a second chance. HOPE teaches the participants how to improve their lives for the better and not return to custody at any level. As a participating mentor, Officer Martin has shared his experiences and helps to motivate the participants to commit to the life changes and staying on track.
