LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas will hold one of the most popular New Year’s Eve celebrations in the country and it’s expected to draw more than 400,000 revelers who will take over the Las Vegas Strip, Fremont Street, and pack into venues to celebrate New Year’s Eve.
As in previous years, there will be road closures, items banned on Las Vegas Boulevard, and a heavy presence of police at America’s Party 2023.
“I can assure you we are doing everything to keep everyone safe,” Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Undersheriff Andrew Walsh said during a morning news briefing with county and city officials.
“We do a ton of exercises leading up to this event and incorporate everything you can possibly think of. So, officers and leadership are planning for those things to happen and what to do next,” Undersheriff Andrew Walsh said.
