LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — There are places all over the valley that are familiar to police. Crime hot spots that generate a lot of calls. Some might surprise you! All week long, we are breaking down these hot spots, region by region.

We obtained a year's worth of data from Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson police departments to answer a question most of you want to know. What places have the most Calls for Service to our local police departments? As you'll see, they're responding to many of the same places every day, several times a day.

We are looking that locations on the Las Vegas Strip to get started.

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 2,018, at number 10, is the Wynn Las Vegas with 1,064 calls. That's up from 930 calls in 2,017.

Fashion Show mall moved into the top ten also, racking up 1,125 in 2018. That means LVMPD responded on average three times a day, every single day.
