New Year’s Eve on Las Vegas Strip will have high security after shooting rampage

Las Vegas officials are expecting lower-than-normal attendance at the New Year’s Eve celebration on the famed Strip, but in light of October’s mass shooting, security will be at its highest level in years.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Wednesday that the Homeland Security Department had raised the New Year’s Eve celebration to the highest security level under its special events protocols — SEAR level 1. In years past, it was level 3.

The change, he said, will bring snipers with spotters, extra air support, more medical equipment and personnel, and mobile command posts staffed by federal authorities. The same security classification and measures are afforded to the Super Bowl and political party conventions for presidential nominations.

Lombardo said there would be more than 1,500 local police officers deployed for a three-day window.

25 years after Christmas murder spree: ‘It will never be forgotten’

For Rhonda Gullette, the meaning of Christmas was forever changed 25 years ago.

“I don’t really celebrate the holidays like other people,” said Gullette, whose 18-year-old sister Danita was one of six people shot and killed over three days around Christmas in 1992. “I go back in my mind and I think about the day I found out that my sister was killed.”
