Mesquite Police Detective Ryan Hughes Receives ‘Southern Nevada SOAR’ Award

Detective Ryan Hughes is this year’s Southern Nevada SOAR award recipient for the Mesquite Police Department, and he was presented the award at a ceremony this morning in Las Vegas.

Detective Hughes was selected for this prestigious award by repeatedly going above and beyond the call of duty. He and his K9 partner Rogue seized over 95 pounds of illegal narcotics so far this year!

In addition he was the arresting officer in over 40 incidents involving the recovery of stolen vehicles, firearms, thousands of dollars of stolen property and other felony offenses. All this was due to Detective Hughes’ skilled proactive policing and dedication to Mesquite citizens.

 Congratulations, Detective Hughes (and Rogue 🐕) and thank you for your continued excellent work!!
