(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Dozens of eyes will be watching you along the Las Vegas Strip.

More than three-dozen surveillance cameras have been installed on a four-mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard.

The $350,000 project is being funded with a Homeland Security grant.

Lieutenant Jim Seebock with the Southern Nevada Counter-Terrorism Center tells the “Las Vegas Sun” they will help prevent crime while spotting suspicious activity along the resort corridor.

The cameras, mounted on traffic poles, will record 14 days of activity before automatically purging old footage.
