    Have been recording this show on Spike tv to get my fix until my trip in March. I have seen every episode about 20 times, but as I'm sure you all would agree, doesnt matter, Vegas! lol

    Anyway last night I watched a few episodes back to back to back and noticed alot of the action was right in front of Harrahs. It was kind of funny that the fights, loud drunks etc and all the incidents were in that general area. Is it a known "hot spot" for craziness? I assume with the carnival Court right there it is a little wild. I am staying at Harrahs on my trip and was just wondering, never stayed there before. Not concerned, matter of fact I like the free "shows".

    Just wondering if it was coincidence or this is a good "dumb ass" watching spot?


    :wave:

    Fashion Show Mall To Harrah's.....

    .....seems to be the hot spot to me.

    It looked to me like the police sort of huddle up with their cars in that alley/entrance off the Strip between the little strip mall just south of the Fashion Show Mall and Paris ?????

    I love me some beer........ but, they find people just absolutely blind ass drunk staggering around. The hookers are just so blase' about getting busted, just another occupational detail they have to work around I guess. The police they show are really very mellow and will give people a break unless they are being totally stupid, aggressive, or have warrants.

    I guess I don't even notice the crazy people on the Strip anymore, jaded vet I guess....that and staying at the Palms and off Strip more too.

    Fun show.....ol' Green Eyes for the win !

    I've been watching that show for some time and always find it amusing at best, disgusting at worst, but always entertaining. It helps remind me why I don't spend time on the Strip these days!

    They aren't making new ones are they? I have my DVR set to record any first run episodes and nothing has been recorded in about a year.

    Love Sergeant Jenkins and the team! Kept my eyes peeled for them during my last visit, but sadly no luckā€¦

    Sighting Last Memorial Day

    I was in Las Vegas Memorial Day weekend last year. My brother and I were walking from the South End of the strip up towards Paris. As we were in front of PH (Miracle Mile Shops) I saw a few police officers running towards us, we stopped turned around and there was a fight. Then all of sudden here comes Sergeant Tom Jenkins, of course being a fan of the TV show I was like star struck (well that and I had a few to many that evening). I was like Sg. Jenkins, he waved and flew by, I would have gotten a photo (because I know he would have taken one) but he was busy. I did love that show, it was part of my Vegas fix.

    Every once in a while the regular Cops show will do a Vegas segment but they hardly ever are on the strip. The closest I've seen lately was a car chase that ended in a crash on Flamingo turning into Bally's.
