Prostitution is NOT LEGAL in Las Vegas
The (LVMPD) Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Vice Unit wants you to know that prostitution is not legal in Las Vegas or anywhere within Clark County. The LVMPD Vice section is responsible for investigating vice-related crimes, including arresting and prosecuting prostitutes, their clients, and pandering suspects; prostitution-related larcenies; drug-related trick rolls, businesses that front for prostitution; sexually-oriented criminal enterprises; juvenile/child prostitution and related pornography; and felony HIV prostitution cases. The Vice section also investigates human trafficking cases involving commercial sex.
That’s right! Prostitution is not legal Las Vegas. Clark County, Nevada and its principal cities Las Vegas, Henderson, Laughlin and Boulder City have chosen to make prostitution illegal.
All female/male escorts, nude models or out-call escorts advertisements are prohibited from soliciting or engaging in prostitution activities.
Many advertisements suggest that you might purchase more than just companionship. They suggest that sexual favors could be available. Be very careful! Every year visitors to Las Vegas are robbed, tricked or assaulted by unscrupulous escorts or "models". If you become a victim please report it. Call 702-828-3111 or for Emergencies dial 9-1-1.
