It is with great sadness I report the loss of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer James Manor in a line of duty car accident that occurred at 0042 hours this morning. Officer Manor has been with the LVMPD for just shy of two years and worked out of the Enterprise Area Command which is located in the Southwest area of Las Vegas. Off icer Manor leaves behind a young daughter and numerous family members. Officer Manor was 28 years old. He was born and raised in Las Vegas and graduated from Clark High School.
The death of Officer Manor is a profound loss to the LVMPD and the community as a whole. Please keep his family, friends, and co-workers in your prayers. Please also remember the medical first responders and the hospital staff that worked diligently to save Officer Manor’s life. This tragedy will be mourned for a long time to come.

Today at noon the Nevada State Police memorial ceremony took place in Carson City. By 1015 am IAWP Region 10 Member, Washoe County Deputy and Nevada State honor guard member Sita Singh called me to send her condolences on the loss of Officer manor, to see how I was doing and to check and see how the officers of the LVMPD are doing. She quickly said, “I will be down for the memorial”. Sita came to Las Vegas as part of the honor guard in 2006 when the LVMPD lost our last officer in the line of duty my friend Sgt. Henry Prendes (Dec 31, 1968 - Feb 1, 2006) I have the full page ad the Sheriff posted in the Las Vegas Review Journal posted in my home. I will somberly add Officer Manor.
May 10, 2009 begins Police Week, a national observance which takes place in Washington, DC. Locally all commissioned police officers (regardless of assignments) if on duty they will don their police agency uniform during one day this month. Though the final arrangements for Officer Manor have not been announced, it would appear he will be honored and laid to rest during Police Week.
