LAS VEGAS (AP) - Clark County elected officials are considering installing security cameras along the planned Flamingo Arroyo trail to combat graffiti, assaults and vandalism.
Commissioners are due today (Tuesday) to consider an application to use $141,000 in Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act funds to buy and install 23 high-resolution cameras along the eight-mile route.
The county already has $14.4 million in public lands funds to build the trail from Maryland Parkway near the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, to the Clark County Wetlands Park near Sam Boyd Stadium.
The money comes from land auctions of federal land in southern Nevada.
A county report says the solar-powered cameras have motion detectors and can broadcast a recorded verbal warning to deter crime.
