The Volunteer Homeland Reserve Unit (VHRU) will undergo training in various
areas of the operations of the participating four member police departments.
VHRU members will interact with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police
Department, Henderson, Boulder City and North Las Vegas Police
Departments to better understand their policy and procedures.
Additionally, the training program will include:
• First Responders Orientation
The VHRU has been approached
by the State of Nevada Emergency Management Office to consider
bringing the group under the state supervision. One of the requirements
to volunteer for the state on homeland security is attending
and becoming certified in Incident Command System training (ICS).
Training has been arranged through Clark County Emergency Management
for the core leadership members (18) during July and August of
2004. Once the core leadership is certified, they can become
trainers and instruct the members of the VHRU on ICS training.
