LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Police now have what they are calling a Community Safety Hub on the Las Vegas Strip giving officers a more visible presence. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department celebrated its opening Monday morning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour of the small building.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo said the center was built to provide an extra layer of security on Las Vegas Boulevard and connect people — residents and visitors — with resources. It’s located next to Resorts World.

“The kiosk represents our commitment toward expanding our community engagement efforts
into different segments of the population that we serve,” said Sheriff Joe Lombardo. “Resorts
World Las Vegas has been a great partner in helping us do that.”

The LVMPD Community Safety Hub will allow officers to connect with people directly on the Las
Vegas Strip.
