Density’ of Las Vegas-area crime in October

The map below shows the "density" of reported crimes during October within Metro Police's jurisdiction (Las Vegas and unincorporated Clark County). It's based on nearly 1,300 incidents last month including homicide, assault, robbery and fighting. Density isn't adjusted for the population in any part of the valley — the color coding is based on both the proximity and frequency of reported crimes. Events that are tightly clustered in terms of physical distance or that are reported multiple times from a similar location correspond with a darker shading on the map.
