While McCarran International Airport may not have been the target, the terror attacks in Brussels have many people wondering if the same thing could happen in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Strip is a high-profile, international destination. Millions of tourists from all over the world flock here.
That's why police at the Southern Nevada Counter-Terrorism Center are keeping a close eye on critical sites all around the city.
We're talking about the Strip, airport, downtown Las Vegas or any place where large groups of people gather.
They're also monitoring news reports for what's happening around the world. This means you're going to see more cops patrolling the city in an effort to keep us safe.
