Clark County is a great environment and very welcoming. My school is located in Clark County and I love the friendly people and families. Clark County rarely has any problems and the crime rate is low. Even though some occurrences happen here and there, metro police are always are on the scene of the crime in a timely manner. I would recommend Clark County to new residents of Las Vegas.

It is decent considering the city life. The most any one would have to complain about is the traffic from time to time. There is a complaint in the change of demographics surrounding the area with many people moving in and not enough space. The worry is going to be there with any newcomer because of the previous mass shooting in the city. The area itself is appealing, and has been alert about safety. The only negative thing so far is the roads. More people are going to find alternate routes if the roads aren't fixed and leveled ASAP.
Clark County is a great place to live. I moved here from Los Angeles, CA with my fiance who received a job offer with DJJS. Shortly after moving here in April of last year, I applied for the County and landed a job. My experience as a Clark County resident has been more than great so far. Its an excellent place for family and the schools seem to be decent. My 9 year old has adjusted to the school systems here and is doing very well in school given the fact that he spent most of his time in private schools up until we moved here. There are many resources for the community and plenty of things for the public to be involved in.
