The police of Las Vegas have always had an interesting job. In a town that thrives on Sin, these men in blue have their hands full just keeping up with all the poor choices of tourists and residents alike. Like all police forces, The LVMPD are underfunded and overworked, but still manage to perform exemplary work.

Since the Vampires and Shifters came forward, their job has become a little more interesting. Unexplained and often gruesome deaths now have an easy blame, though not entirely accurate. It is easy to pass off the strange on the supernatural, but some of the force are committed to the pursuit of the truth. Prejudice and pessimism runs rampant mixed with idealism and hope. The LVMPD are largely concerned with the human population, while the Special Affairs Division (SAD) are called in for cases with confirmed Preternatural involvement.

Recently, the LVMPD is riding a wave of positive morale due to the apprehension of a prominent Crime Boss, who just happened to be a Shapeshifter as well. After years of investigation and work, a case was brought before the judge and the whole local syndicate was taken down. The whole force takes pride in this fine accomplishment.
