LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — While working today on the east side of Las Vegas Clark County School District Police Department (CCSDPD) officers saw 2 children sitting on the side of the road near a van.

CCSDPD officer K. Pinto and Officer A. Beatty spoke with the family who they learned recently became homeless.

The family has been living out of their van for the past two weeks.

The officers provided the family with two new car seats for the children.

Officer J Trujillo, a certified CPS car seat tech, helped out by installing both seats with the assistance of Officer I. Campos.


Officer J. Clark joined his fellow officers and came to the scene to provide the family with two gift cards to Subway and a box of food.

The officers and family headed to a gas station to fill the tank of the van with gas before heading to a local shelter to get the family additional assistance.
