LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- From new businesses moving to Fremont Street to future development in the works, downtown Las Vegas has come a long way over the past few years.

As more people walk the streets east of Las Vegas Boulevard, there's a new addition to The Downtown Project with safety in mind.

The Downtown Rangers have been patrolling the streets from morning through the night for a couple weeks now, but they do much more than that.

The group is privately funded by The Downtown Project. Leading them is retired Metro Sgt. Christopher Curtis.

They don't carry weapons or handle police matters, but the street staff of 14 Rangers provides a safety presence.

Body cameras capture notable incidents during their rounds, including unwanted artwork sprayed on the walls.

The Rangers also call themselves a mobile concierge service.
