Contestants from a new reality TV show called “Ultimate Women Challenge” will be competing on Las Vegas Metro Police Department’s special weapons and tactics course Saturday.
The episode being filmed at the SWAT course, located at 7600 E. Carey Ave., will help benefit the Injured Police Officers’ Fund, a local non-profit organization that helps families of police officers who have been injured or killed in the line of duty.
“Ultimate Women Challenge,” airing in September on NBC, will feature 16 female mixed martial arts fighters. The TV series is about empowerment, with an emphasis on education and community service, according to the show’s website. Certain episodes will be dedicated to a specific social cause or charity, which will be incorporated into the challenges the women face.
Metro Police officers will be on-hand Saturday to assist with the competition, set to start in the morning.
