In light of the recent attempt to set off a bomb in New York’s Times Square, extra eyes are keeping watch over possible terrorist targets. A national program is training parking attendants to watch for suspicious people.
Las Vegas, one of the hottest tourist spots in the world makes one wonder if what happened in New York could happen here.
“Would you want to come someplace where terrorists are setting off bombs,” asks Las Vegas resident Jim Hawkins.
A new government program plans to train parking attendants and meter maids to watch and report anything suspicious.
“Education is the biggest thing. Educating the public, our private partners and also law enforcement,” says Sgt. Brian Hibbetts with Metro’s Homeland Security/Counter Terrorism Section.
