Las Vegas police cameras keeping watch on the Strip

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police want people to know they are now being watched on the Las Vegas Strip.

The department has installed 37 surveillance cameras in different locations from the Welcome to Las Vegas sign on the south end, all the way up to Sahara.

They're hi-def with full pan and tilt capabilities.

The cameras have actually been in use for a few months now. 

Police said it's all to keep everyone safe. They said the cameras have already helped them make a number of arrests in crimes that happened on the Strip.

The images captured on the cameras will be stored for 14 days. They are controlled by a light duty police officer.

Police said having the cameras is like having more police officers on patrol.

The cameras were funded through a federal Homeland Security grant.
