LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- For the first time, the Las Vegas Strip has permanent surveillance cameras.

All other Strip cameras before this were temporary. Metro will monitor the 37 cameras for crime.

A Department of Homeland Security grant paid for the cameras.

Police say the Strip shooting and the Boston bombing highlighted the need for cameras to identify suspects.

Should an event happen whether it be with the Strip shooting or anything else tragic to that matter, this will be a good investigative tool so we can start going back to try and identify the people or person that did that and get some investigative leads,” said Metro Lt. Jim Seebock of the Southern Nevada Counterterrorism Center.

All of the cameras should be up and running by the end of this month.
