With thousands of people expected in Las Vegas this week for the Super Bowl, authorities are calling on the community to help report parties at short-term rentals.
“It’s almost Super Bowl weekend and we need your help,” a flyer shared on social media from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says.
On the flyer, LVMPD is advising residents to report “large parties” at short-term rentals in valley neighborhoods.

The department notes that if there is an active emergency, residents are urged to contact 9-1-1. Authorities also note that 3-1-1 is available “if you think the police need to be aware of a suspicious or a nuisance behavior, but it does not rise to the level of an emergency.”
Those who want to remain anonymous can also submit a tip online to Crime Stoppers of Nevada: crimestoppersofnv.com.
LVMPD’s request for assistance with short-term rentals comes shortly after the city of Las Vegas recently imposed a $180,000 penalty on a homeowner after officials said a home was rented out through Airbnb without a city-mandated license.
