And cab drivers don't need a Sheriff's card. They do, however need to have a Transit Authority permit, and a DOT physical card. The physical card doesn't have to be displayed, but the TA permit does when you're driving a cab.

In the past it was called Sherrif's Card/Gaming Card. This was issued in a Metro Sub-station downtown which has since closed down. The sub-station was diagonally across from the Emergency Arts formerly known as the Fremont Medical. There were two different cards one for gaming and one for non-gaming, back then all Casino/Hotel workers were required to have one. Human resources issued paperworks which you will have to bring to the sub-station.

Xfile was correct.

WAS CORRECT but out of touch with the world.


about 15 years out of touch or so.[maybe 10]

A Sheriffs card is no longer needed what is now needed is the gaming card IF and onoly if you are in a GAMING REALATED FIELD

When i got my first Sheriffs cad [so called because it was issued ny the REAL SHERIFF if Clark county [Ralph Lamb] you went to the SHERIFFS office on 3rd street..up to the 3rd floor...paid them $7.50 and gave them your Name address and Soc #.

YOu came back 10 days later and one of two things happened....they handed you the Sheriffs Card andyou went to work....OR they arrested you and sent you on your way.

Gee I think that I am currently working in gaming unless I have become delusional. Times have changed since the Bellagio opened. If you were still working in the industry. Then you would know that Sherriff Gaming Card changed to NVGCB registration. If your willing to lay some cash on the subject. I am willing to take your $

Yes Sheriffs Card and Gaming card were one and the same. So when a Casino or a hotel mention you need a Sheriff's card they are referring to a gaming or non-gaming card depending on the type of your position. One does not need to have both gaming and non-gaming card. The application is meant to check the background of the prospective employee and if for some reason one has a not so clean background the card will not be issued. The parameters of what they check is beyond me but I suspect someone who is a felon will have a difficult time obtaining the card.

At one time for many years LV Metro handled the background check required by NVGCB for the gaming employees in Clark County. The non-Gaming sheriff cards was just a revenue maker for the County and not legally needed but required by the resorts. The local 226 Culinary Union challenged the County for the need of a non-gaming card as a requirement for employment so it was later dropped. Later on employed felons where found working in casinos with current Gaming Sheriffs cards. METRO could not explain why this had happened. NVGCB now contracts out the background checks to be done by the FBI. Its been this way on the gaming side since 2002. The loss of non gaming was done away in 1998.

You get no card, you simply register with gaming, unlike years ago when you physically got a 'Sheriff's' or Gaming card.
