What Happens In Vegas, Happens on Camera

LAS VEGAS: From the moment a visitor to Las Vegas gets out of the plane, he or she is tracked by video cameras everywhere, except inside their hotel room.

The city's airport has three times as many cameras as any other US airport, chiefly to keep a watch over the numerous slot machines that crowd the facility.

Even inside a taxi, a white light comes on beneath the rear view mirror to indicate that every movement is being videotaped.

"It's brand new, we've had it for two weeks. It's supposed to make us safer, but lots of customers complain about it. Drivers don't like to be under watch all the time," said cab driver Yodi Soliman.

Las Vegas has successfully used the "What happens here, stays here" slogan to boost tourism. But public agencies and private security firms that handle all the filming do not miss a beat.
