Ever wondered which spots on the Las Vegas Strip draw the most attention from authorities?

Scripps station KTNV in Las Vegas obtained a year's worth of data from Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson police departments to find out which places had the most calls for service to local police departments. As you'll see, they're responding to many of the same places every day, several times a day.

As expected some of the biggest properties with the most traffic generate the most calls to police. The Strip is in Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's jurisdiction.

New to the top 10 in 2018, at number 10, is the Wynn Las Vegas with 1,064 calls. That's up from 930 calls in 2017.

Fashion Show Mall moved into the top 10 as well, racking up 1,125 in 2018. That means LVMPD responded on average three times a day, every single day.

The 5th location with the most calls is Planet Hollywood at 1,312. In 4th place with 1,567, The Cosmopolitan. The 3rd location is the Bellagio with 1,646 calls, topped by Caesars Palace in 2nd place at 2,094.

And sitting at number one for the second year in a row is MGM Grand with 2,492 calls for service in 2018.

While the Wynn and Fashion Show Mall are new to the Crime Hot Spots list, the Flamingo hotel and Cromwell casino dropped out of the Top 10 for locations on the Strip. LVMPD tells KTNV the vast majority of these calls are for unspecified trouble, disturbances, suspicious vehicles, and theft.
