Las Vegas Metro police car generic

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas Metropolitan Police are requiring new hires to be vaccinated. 

Employees must show proof of vaccination prior to being hired, according to a careers page on the LVMPD website. 

The department will provide a process for accommodations, Sgt. Miguel Garcia said.

"If there's some kind of accommodation, whether it's ADA or a religious belief, it will be reviewed and our department will determine if it's a reasonable accommodation," Garcia said. 

Current LVMPD employees will not be required to get the vaccine, unless a transfer to a new department requires a new hire process, he added.
