All officers with the Mesquite Police Department are currently shrouding their badges with a black band. This is to pay respect to LVMPD Officer Charleston Hartfield. Officer Hartfield was off duty at the time, but was one of the victims killed last week during the horrible attack which occurred in Las Vegas. A Mesquite resident, Lynda Bennett, wrote a poem about officers shrouding their badges. She shared it with the Mesquite Police Department yesterday and gave us permission to share it with you:

Mesquite Police Chief Troy Tanner Releases Statement Regarding Last Week’s Attack: It has been a week and a half since the horrific and evil attack on southern Nevada occurred, and the Mesquite Police Department is still hard at work assisting the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) with their investigation into the shooter and his residence here in Mesquite. I would like to express my condolences and let all of the victims and their loved ones know how sad and deeply impacted all of the members of the Mesquite Police Department and our community are. I feel strongly that the shooter’s repugnant actions will not impact our wonderful city. He was hardly a member of this community. Living here less than a year and it appears he contributed very little, if nothing while here. Mesquite is a popular place to raise a family, retire, and recreate. It will continue to be one of the most popular and beautiful places in Nevada. Mesquite city is still the second safest city in the state of Nevada. All of the police officers who work here love this community and are heavily involved in it. Because of this, our city is safe, and will continue to be so. We average short response times and a high solvability rate on crimes. I am giving every resource Sheriff Lombardo and his team requests for assistance; in order to help close this case. My hope is we can play a part in helping to bring justice and closure to the victims. This unusually large and complex investigation is being headed by LVMPD, and all official statements and press releases regarding the investigation must come through their office. I believe when this investigation is over and time goes on, our city will have grown stronger because those who live here will show more love and kindness to one another. As future crime statistics are released, our crime rates will continue to be one of the lowest not only in Nevada, but in the nation.

FINAL UPDATE: One NB lane now open. UPDATE: NHP will soon open up one NB lane to travel. UPDATE: NB 15 at mm 93 remains closed on account of a fatal accident at that location. UPDATE: One SB Lane is now open. NB15 and SB15 are closed between mm 89-92 due to a motor vehicle accident with injuries.
