    Security at Caesars Palace Las Vegas

    I was playing slots in CPs Forum Casino (near Gordon Ramsay) in the mid-afternoon, this area has lots of people passing through (Forum Shops to other areas of the casino). I had my wallet out planning to put money in a slot machine, someone tried to grab money from my wallet--I held tigjht and nothing was taken. I looked for a security person, there were none. I played several hours over a 2 day period in the Forum Casinio and never once saw any security people patrolling the Casino floor. This lapse in security places gamblers at risk. I'm 77 years old and was not going to run after the culprit (and face a potential more serious confrontation). I mainly play in TR casinos in Atlantic City, securituy people are prominently patrolling the slot areas.
    PS: It seems CP has cut their slot attendants also--you don't see too many of them either.

    I am sorry you went through this and really glad you brought this issue to the forefront..security is absolutely the top selling point as to whether or not I will play at a casino. Now that I am a senior with very visible disability issues(a walker), I feel vulnerable around crowds and when you mix in booze and money you're talking potential problems..IMO, the best deterrent and the best way for me to feel comfortable is to have visible security actively patrolling.
    Plainclothes security is fine but the sight of obvious security is reassuring and a great deterrent.

    My guess is that (especially between noon and 10 pm) the Forum Casino is populated with lots of people, no one is going to steal from a slot player, hence they don't need much security--a FALSE premise IMHO.
    I did send an email to TR, they appologized for my issue, but NEVER addressed the lack of visible security.

    Over on VMB, a member posted about the same thing happening to her at Harrah’s Cherokee. She’s a tiny 110lb Asian lady. The person snatched her envelope with $2k in it and took off running past security. As she was screaming for people to stop the thief, security just stood there and said it’s not their job.

    Most thieves are realizing that casino security is there to protect their money, not yours. And most are just minimum wage workers with a uniform.

    If you notice in most casinos in Vegas the security guards are in simple polo shirts with a walkie-talkie and maybe a pair of handcuffs. It has an imprint that simple says "SECURITY"....GONE are the days of real uniformed armed "police-looking" security guards. Why? It seems that to hire an "armed" guard is very expensive.

    The security I’ve seen at CP were all in uniforms, though none were in slot gaining areas. I never saw the polo shirt crew in CP.
