LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Las Vegas police are asking residents to stay vigilant for ‘party houses’ in their neighborhoods during Super Bowl weekend.
“LVMPD needs your help to report chronic nuisance or party homes in your neighborhood,” The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Enterprise Area Command stated in a flyer to community members.
Residents who spot an issue in their neighborhood have several options which are listed below.
PARTY HOUSE REPORTING OPTIONS
- Call 311 if you think police need to be aware of suspicious or nuisance behavior
- If it rises to the level of an emergency contact police at 911
- Anonymously submit tips to Crime Stoppers online or at 702-385-5555
- Visit LVMPD.com to “Find your station” and submit a “service request”
“If you are aware of a problem or party house in your community, we want to know about it,” police added.
In 2023, there were at least four reports of house party deaths across Las Vegas, which took the lives of at least five people and injured several others. At least three of the people killed were teenagers.
In the past, police have indicated that parties at short-term rentals also contribute to the problem among permanent residents. Police also typically receive more calls for service during tourism influxes and large gatherings.
