LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) – Metro police wants to remind the community of the recent changes in Nevada law regarding unmanned aerial vehicles also known as drones.

Metro Police sent the following statement:
“Nevada Assembly Bill 239, SEC 18.2b, states that it is illegal to fly an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) within 5 miles of an airport without the airport authority’s permission. Due to the Las Vegas Strip being within 5 miles of McCarran International Airport, the LVMPD will be looking for violators who are flying UAVs along the Las Vegas Strip during the New Year’s Eve celebration.”

“Officers who observe UAVs flying along the Strip will immediately have the operator secure their UAV. If an operator fails to secure their UAV, the officer may impound the UAV and the operator may face further criminal charges.”

Metro says to help make New Year’s Eve fun and safe celebration for all those in attendance.
