The cameras will begin recording later this month and officials hope they will be able to help prevent crime as well as aid in investigations. All cameras are programmed to delete all video after 14-days.
The footage can be viewed from emergency operation centers, a police substation on the Strip and the Southern Nevada Counter Terrorism Center. Officials hope to eventually have the footage viewed 24/7.
“It’s a force multiplier,” said Lt. Jim Seebock of the Southern Nevada Counter Terrorism Center. “One person utilizing these cameras can help prevent a whole lot or identify a whole lot that’s going on in a large span from one position.”
