Nevada Regulators Warn Casinos About Pool Parties

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police and the Nevada Gaming Control Board are warning hotels and casinos they will not tolerate properties that let their guests run wild.

Spring break season has arrived and thousands of college students are flooding into Las Vegas' night clubs and pools. Tourists want a good time and hotels and casinos want their business.

Jody Lake is the chief operating officer at the Hard Rock Hotel and it's his job to make sure partiers have a good time.

"We definitely want to promote a full experience here, but safety is first with respect to our guests," Lake said. "We beef up our security around the property and we just take a lot of precautions, extra training for the life guard staff, the staff outside and inside."

The Gaming Control Board and Metro Police are giving properties a stern warning to make sure they are doing everything they can to cut down on crime. The control board said it will be going undercover into clubs and party pools to make sure hotel staff aren't facilitating the illegal behavior. Board officials praised properties like the Hard Rock Hotel for their efforts with visitors feeling safe is part of the good time.

"We do a very thorough job of that we make sure that we are bringing in the right team members and by bringing in the right team members we can keep a lot of that element out, outside of our property," Lake added.

Last year, the Palms Hotel owners were fined a million dollars after an investigation found employees were taking money in exchange for arranging for prostitutes, cocaine and prescription pills.
