The paper discusses how Las Vegas has a problem with crimes involving various types of thefts. The paper explains why focusing on the current theft cases will be in the interests of the citizens of Las Vegas. The paper specifically recommends the use of forensic techniques to solve these theft crimes.

From the Paper:

"Las Vegas is a city which is associated with good times, laughter, and great adventures. Yet, the city is threatened by budding crime which not only has the potential to cause pain and suffering in the lives of the locals, but also but a damper on the multi-billion dollar tourist industry set in place there. Out of all of the crimes committed within the coveted city limits of Las Vegas, Nevada, theft proves most apparent. Crimes from robbery, and especially car theft, have proven to be higher than the national average and place locals and tourists in danger. With the local attitude of wanting to fiercely protect not only their own interests, but also the thriving tourism industry they depend on, law enforcement should place much more effort in deterring and resolving crimes of theft; potentially through such new routes as applying a budding forensic science department within certain theft cases."
